This forum was a lifeline to me early on in my grief. Tom, Terry and quite a few of the parents who lost children around the same time that I lost my son helped to carry me through the darkest of days. I rarely check in anymore but the holidays makes me sentimental and brings forth memories to me. Also, a long time friend lost her daughter one year ago today and in trying to help emotionally support her I always recommend this website to her.
I wish peace of heart for all of you and blessings to sustain you.
We are the war veterans of life and everyone else is civilians and just cannot get it. Take as much time as you need to reflect, cry, and hopefully tender memories will ease the way.
With love,

Parent Loss / Re: Introductions
« Last post by Terry on December 17, 2017, 07:43:17 PM »
My name is Lindsay.
My father committed suicide almost 20 years ago. I was 11.
I'm still struggling.
We don't have any support groups where I live so I am here.


((((Lindsay)))),

11 is so young to bury a parent. We are left with so many questions that we may never get the answers to. Tell us about your Dad. How have you been doing with the holidays here?

Big hugs,
Terry

Child Loss / Re: Is there an age limit for "child"

Mugless,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your precious son. Welcome to our Webhealing family.

I came to Webhealing when my surviving son, Jeff of 28 years, died. No, age does not matter. We have members who have lost newborn babies (I am one of those members) and children in their 60's.

Tell us about your son. We would like to get to know you both. And, if you like you can post his birth and angel date and I will post them on the calendar for you. He will always be remembered on his special dates, and yours on Webhealing.

Sending big hugs and my love,
Terry

I just lost my son.  He was 26 in body.  Is that too old to be in this group?

I am glad that you found this forum and hope that it might help you.

The early and tragic loss of a parent can be difficult to manage, especially without supports and good help.
One thing I always coach clients to do is to is eliminate any thoughts of "I should be better, over it, etc", or "this is taking too long". 

Grief and loss are a lifelong companion we learn to manage and embrace.

Best of success and support.

Hi Terry, Thanksgiving was just me and my mom this year. It was quieter then usual with no grand kids or nieces and nephews but it was still nice. I haven't gotten on here as I was before because as it seems like the last month and a half each week I have a different emergency. One week Two Toez was sick so I got him taken care of then the next week my oil furnace wouldn't run so so I pulled out the burner blower assembly and rebuilt it and ran new line so I got that wrapped up. Two days later refrigerator stopped running. I tried a few things that could cause it to stop running. That didn't fix it so called GE so they can get a tech on it. Now I got the Van in the back parking pad somewhat dissected and transmission to the shop. So I'm having fun. There has been other stuff happening here and there too. So I don't get upset and just do what I can and keep my sense of humor.

Hi Mark,

How was your Thanksgiving? Did you have company or was it just a quiet day?

Thinking about you.

Hugs,
Terry
