Child Loss / Re: Do you dream?
« on: November 17, 2007, 11:15:09 AM »
I've had a few dreams about Brynnie.  Usually in them she is a lot younger and I am usually pretty much ignoring her.  Then I wake up feeling terrible.
I also have a number of nightmares, where someone is trying to kill me.  Not fun.
Have no idea what they all mean.

Any of you on Facebook?  I am, and you can add me if you wish.  I am under the name: Elaine Suddes .  There is also a facebook group some kids created in memory of Brynn that anyone can join.  It is called R.I.P. Brynn Suddes .
Just thought some of you may also have something like this.  It's a cool way to see more pictures and things.

Wendy -
I don't really have any advice for you.  Just want you to know that I am facing the same thing.  My disablity benefits are coming to an end, so I will be back to work in a couple of weeks.  I too am terrified!  I work as a pharmacy technician and I'm so afraid of making a terrible mistake with someone's medication or something.  Also nervous to be with my co-workers, and some new people hired on there this year.  Unfortunately, I have no choice.  I was a single parent, and Brynn was my only child so I don't have anyone to help to support me financially.  Why don't we try to get through this together?  Feel free to email me, if you like.  I'm certainly thinking about you.

Child Loss / Re: How to Help a Friend

So good of you to not abandon your friend!  I have lost many friends since I lost my daughter in January of this year.  I would recommend a grief counsellor.  I have just started with a new counsellor (sometimes it takes a couple of tries to get the right "fit) and I just love her.  It helps tremendously.  The suggestions about your friend joining us on this board are good ones too.  This is a wonderful, warm caring bunch of people who can totally relate.
Take care, and please continue to listen, and to talk about his son with him.

Dear Elle,
I lost my daughter Brynn in a car accident in January 2007.  I believe that there is no wrong or right way to grieving.  Have you spoken with a grief counsellor?  I have one, and she is a tremendous help.  We are all here for you.  I have "met" some of the most wonderful people here.  Please write more, and you will find an outpouring of love from the people here.  I can guarantee it.
Try to take care, I know it's very, very hard.

My dad's surgery went well.  He is of course still in hospital, but seems to be recovering nicely so far.

It's just so up and down all the time.  Each time I think I'm doing better, I go back down again.  How long does that go on for?
Thanks for all the comments.  I wish none of us were in these circumstances.

I saw it too.  I have to drive out of my driveway everyday just to see where Brynnie died.  It's torture every time.

Hi, Elaine ( aka Lainie) is back, left a long ranting post again, where we left off) anyway, trying really hard to find positive things in our world.  Love you all, you are so great!
Elaine,  Brynnie's mom
Brynnie would be 13 years old on Dec. 14, and her angel day is Jan. 2, 07.
That will be a hard few weeks.

I am sorry that you are missing Jason - hope you were able to find some peace.  We should not be here without our children.
