Hi I am a new member, I lost my 18 year old son in sept 07 following a car accident.It was such a terrible shock I think even now it still hasnt fully sunk in.Even though I am taking anti depressants and having counselling I am feeling worse not better.I feel like I am just existing for the sake of my two other children

Hi

Afternoon
Most of us are Parents who have lost a child
I lost 20yrd old in car acc ---nov 2005
I have been on depressants and other
councelling just good for talking then back to square one

I have survived up till now even having attended trial etc just through initially being in a state of shock-numbness-and some willingnessto fight and fight as I still have a daughter-It will not get easier in the near future-but let nature take its course-crying is normal-depressing is normal-anger is normal-almost all your feelings you have inside are normal and expected-there is no time limit-eventuallu you will learn to cope better with it-but it never goes away
keep coming back to this site and talk and I shall reply

my mob is 0792 1044 785

We lost our son Carl aged 24 last July (soon the first anniversary) I do know what you are saying - life will never be the same. Yes ours hearts are broken like yours.
Someone wrote to me and said it is like a disability you HAVE to live with it.

We are trying to make something positive come out of all the tears by not letting his life be for nothing - for you dont let the grief consume you - no you will never get over it and why should you it shouldnt have happened, but try just for today to think about the good things / the smiles while remembering your son.
One day at a time !

Hi Sue

Yes, its one day at a time and I find it a daily battle, hopefully the pain will ease with time, in the mean time is good to talk to others as sometimes I feel I am alone or the only one with these feelings

Catherine
hang on--although rough even on a daily basis-what i found that nothing goes away but you start to cope better with the trauma-it affect people in different ways and different ways to cope with it-I started the website and now a book-writing of my experience was comforting-
keep speaking your mind on the site and I shall reply all the time so that you are not alone
