Child Loss / Re: Another first, his birthday
« on: April 26, 2008, 06:34:45 AM »
Hi Wendy:
Sometimes I think the anticipation of that day are worse than the actual day.  Our Jason's birthday is April 29th this will be his fourth birthday without him.  We have done different things each year and I usually take off work but this year I think I will work, still celebrate and mark that day with some celebration.  We have done many things over the years, balloon releases, graveside memorials.  You should do whatever you feel you can.  Everyone can only do what they are able to do I will be thinking of you and your family.  I hope you feel a warm breeze brush across your face and know it is your precious son telling you he is ok.

Hi Tammy:
I llive my life one day, one moment, one breathe at a time!!  Somedays all I can hope to do is breathe.  I wish I could offer you a light at the end of the tunnel but after 3 years I have no wisdom to offer you.  Somedays are better than others when you have a good day enjoy and when you have a bad one do what you can and don't stress over what you can't do.  I know it sounds depressing but our lives are rather depressing now, aren't they?
When I first lost my Jason I broke down very easy and had very deep emotional crys I'm finding now they are further apart and I'm able to regain control of myself a little quicker.  I don't think things ever get "better" maybe just "bearable".

Hi there!
She's adorable!!  One of those little bright spots in such a dark and lonely life since losing out children.  They are there but it seems to get farther and farther apart.  But today is a good day, be happy in the moment and enjoy!

Child Loss / Re: What does this mean?
« on: April 26, 2008, 06:21:29 AM »
Hi REbecca:
I'm not sure if we are adjusting to our new life or if we are just learning to accept the inevitable.  Our lives are forever changed and different and as I live I am becoming more and more disenchanted by this world.  Long to be with my Jason more and more.  Oh, yes there are happy times but it seems the happy times are fewer and farther between.  I have 1 new grandbaby and another on the way the end of May and oh they certainly have made it more bearable and wonderful but there is still that gaping hole in my heart that will never go away.  I'm finding I do still breakdown alot and sometimes I go right back to the very day and it's like someone is twisting my stomach into knots and crying uncontrollable.  I'm finding it harder to live with this loss.  I know people say it softens but I don't feel that.
One day, one moment, one breathe at a time!!

Hi Martha:
We will pray for your family.  I know exactly what you mean about being so scared.  I've become so paranoid about my other children since losing my Jason.  Things will work out!!

You're right it's just not fair and it does make us oh sooooooooooo mad!  Our lives are forever changed and forever different and our new lives just suck to put it bluntly.  There are some times of laughter but the loss seems to outweight the laughter most of the time!!  I'm thinking of you and hope you can find a few moments of peace!

Child Loss / Re: Struggling With So Many Things
« on: April 22, 2008, 08:02:11 PM »
Hi Annette:
When I lost my son 3 years ago we went to a counselor that was sponsored by our Jewish Hospice here in Cincinnati.  Maybe you could contact them and they could hook you up with someone there.  There will always be those moments when just a little trigger will take you back to the very day you lost your precious child.  Keep coming to the board and posting, this board kept me alive for 3 years.  There are some very encouraging people here full of wisdom that will help you tremendously.  We are so glad you are here but so sorry for the reason that brings you here.  Sometimes we have those overwhelming days when all we can hope to accomplish is breathing.  During those days just accept the fact that you will be feeling that way until it subsides.

Child Loss / Re: How tough are Angel anniversaries for you?
« on: April 22, 2008, 07:47:38 PM »
Hi Marty:
Anniversaries, holidays, so many things can trigger those feelings and take you right back to the day you lost your precious child.  I do not find they are any easier today than they were when I first saw the coroner and police officer at my door the night my son was killed in a car accident 3 years ago. 
I think sometimes the anticipation of them is wose than the actual day, don't know why!
My prayers are with you!

« on: April 22, 2008, 07:37:35 PM »
CAYDEN what a cute name.  There is something so unfair and out of order when we lose our children.  Our lives are forever changed and will never be the same.  Such a terrible accident.  I know how you feel, my life changed suddenly on Dec 15, 2004 at 11:59 when he was killed in a car accident, a mile from our home.  Someday we will see our babies again and oh what a wonderful day that will be for all of us. 
I am glad you are here you will find many good people here who will help you tremendously.  I practically lived on this sight for 3 years and they were my lifeline.  Please feel free to share or vent whenever you need us-we will be here!!

Child Loss / Re: Overwhelming Sad Today
« on: April 22, 2008, 07:20:06 PM »
Hi Rebecca:
I think stress plays such a huge role in our health.  Since losing my Jason I have developed high blood pressure, thyroid problems, high cholestrol took myself off anti-depressents, but should still be on them and need to take something to sleep.  I am so sorry you are feeling so sad today.  I keep waiting for that time my grief counselor talked about when you get through this grief cycle and you actually get to a point of organization and acceptance, I personally don't know if that ever comes.  I know you are a person of faith and sometimes I think that is the only thing that will get us through this is our faith and knowing that someday we will hold our children in our arms again.  I hope you will find some peace even is just for a few moments today.  My thoughts and prayers are with you, my friend!!

Hi Virgie:
Maybe this can be a new beginning for you and your family a time of healing!  We all make mistakes, we are human.  Losing a child or anyone that you dearly love really gives us a reality check and we realize just what is important to us and what things used to seem important we realize how trivial they can also be.  I don't feel you are responsible for your dad's heart attack there are just some things we have no control over and this is one.  It's a new beginning I pray you will work it out and realize what is important-family, friends and making each day count for something.  Our boys would want things to be ok for us and we must go on for them.

Hi Greg:
I am so sorry for your pain!  This grief is so much like riding a roller coaster-up and down.  More down than up.  I lost my Jason when he was 24 he would have been 28 the 29th of April.  All the things we wanted for our children that will never be.  At the same time, you have other children and I too have two beautiful daughters that I must continue on for but we are not the same people we were and sometimes our children have trouble understanding that, at least mine do.  I am a different person now.  This is a very good site filled with much wisdom from people who have been and are where you are.  I have found such encouragement here.  Keep coming and posting whenever you are able.
One day, one moment, one breathe at a time!!
