You will be missed.

I don't visit as often as I once did but you helped me so much on this journey grief.

Please do visit when you can and let us know how you are doing.

I know all of our Angels appreciate all you have done too.

Hi, Carol,

Nice to see your post.

I too am now coming up on 5 years sice Tammie has been gone.

I don't post often but I do occasionally read.  I lived on this board for such a very long time. At this point in my grief I am pretty private as well and pick who I will share it with.

Thanks for posting,
Dottie Tammie's Mom

Hi, Martha,

Please know I am thinking of you and your family.

I know the 5 year mark is hard to believe as I am approaching it in Sept. for Tammie.

Candi is in my prayers,

Nice to hear from you. I am glad all your kids are doing well. The farm sounds wonderful therapudic and peaceful. I am happy you are able to find moments of peace there.

I don't post often either, I read but like you feel I have no more to offer at this point. I have days I slip back into that dark pit and it is hard at times to crawl out. I also feel this is as good as it gets. I have times of peace and laughter but I too am a different person. Some better some not.

I have a much smaller group of friends now. But I found many really are not friends to begin with. I stay busy less time to think. We all do what we must to get to the next day.

My husband and I also had VERY rocky times, we grieved very differently. But we have found our way back and doing OK now.

Sending you peace and HUGS,
Dottie Tammie's Mom

If you are able to sit and read get the book by John Edward ( the medium) titled ONCE LAST TIME. It helped me so much. I couldn't put it down.

Dear Don,

You know I am thinking of you and Donny. Our lives will always be different without our kids. I don't think it really ever gets better I think we at some point learn to live with our pain and emptiness it just becomes part of who we are.

Health problems come along with the grief. Getting help for our health problems is something we force ourseleves to do for our families.

It will be 5 years this September since Tammie died and is it better ?? I would say just different now. I miss her daily, her phone calls, her drop in visits, her smile and laugh and even her tears. But I have learned keeping busy helps me to not think so much about things I can not change. I think we all live with survivors guilt. As a parent we should not out live our kids.

People around us think we should be over IT !! But we never get over the death of a child.

After the first two heart breaking years I was finally convinced to take a antidepressant it has helped. I still take it. Depression can just suck us in to a dark place and keep us there. I know Donny would not want that for you.

Know I care and I think of you so often.

Nice to see some of the people reply to you who helped me in my early grief.

I am so very sorry . I know there are no words but know I care.

I lost my only child my daughter Tammie she was 40. Tammie died from an accidental overdose of prescription medication. She was not only my child but my very best friend, also a Mommy's girl.

I found this board 6 months after her death, it helped to save my life. When no one else was there to talk to or listen the wonderful parents here were always there. It will 5 years this Sept. and I don't write as often as I once did but I still read and feel the pain of the new members.

Write more when you can.
