Maybe it is Jason's way of letting you know he is close to you while you are struggling with your grief.

I do believe our kids help us through those dark times we all seem to struggle with.

Sending peace,

There are no words to express what I am feeling for you and Sara's Mom. I can only imagine the mixed feelings.

I admire all of you parents that were strong enough to make the decision to help others at a time you were losing your child.

I am sending peace to you and a GIANT HUG,

So very sorry for the loss of your son. I am sorry you had to look for a place like this but glad you found this one.

I too lost my only child my daughter Tammie. It will be 5 years in September. I never thought I would still be here to see 5 years without her. But I found this safe place and the wonderful understanding people here. Along this journey of grief the people here saved me. I have made life long friends from some of these people.

Again I am so sorry.

know I understand I too am approaching 5 years and it is so easy to slip into that dark pit of grief.
Not caring about ourselves is so easy to do.

Take it easy,

I am so very sorry that your little Dominic had so many health issues during his short life.

you are so new in your grief I can only say as I approach  my fifth year that it becomes DIFFERENT but it is always right there with us and can bubble to the surface at any time.

I also lost my only child , my daughter Tammie. We were extremely close and I have emptiness in my life that can never be filled. In the early stages of grief I felt unattached to anyone, very alone.

I too am catholic and also struggled with my anger at God, I still do at times. However I was told God understands our anger and has big shoulders for us to cry on. I do believe I will see my daughter again.

I went to both private and group counseling for over 2 years, occasionally I still go to my group. It helped. But the wonderful understanding parents on this board helped more than anyone.I formed some real friendships and bonds here.

As for my group of friends, it is VERY small. I found out we have very few true friends in our time of grief.
