Losing a child of any age, regardless of the cause, sems so wrong.

Honestly 6 weeks is no time at all. It is 10 monts since my son died and I cannot pretend it has got any easier, and despite how I felt initially, I anm still here, the days will never be the same again. I miss him so muchand some days the tears and sadness seem endless, but with support the days can be manageable.

You might find it helpful to contact “The compassionate Friends” group who offer support to bereaved parents. Another option is bereavement counselling and you can self refer to CRUSE for this.

Remember, you can only take one minute at a time, one day at a time, one step at a time and with each step you take, each day you get through, you will, in time, feel stronger and better able to face the next day and the next one.

Thanks very much bit they can’t do anything no one can

It is often an injustice that makes us fight to address the wrong that has been done.

I understand how angry you feel, but please, don’t take the law into your own hands. Your son would not, I am sure, want you to come to any harm because of him.

You could contact “Carers” in whichever area you live. If it’s not Carers, there will be an alternative organisation that can offer you support, it’s worth finding out what is available locally.

Loss and grief are so difficult and allowing others to be there when we need them can make a real difference.

If, in time, you can find the strength to fight and justice rather than a person your son’s death will seem not have been in vain.

I am so very sorry to hear what has happened to your boy. I lost my daughter tragically. I felt like my whole world had turned upside down and totally overwhelmed and angry. If you can put one foot in front of the other right now use that energy for looking after yourself and loved ones. That is a huge task and exhausting and overwhelming right now for you. I guess the police know about the issues you are talking about, if not, tell them. Look after the people you love and leave the rest to the police, it’s too much for you to take on, you are suffering a huge overwhelming loss and you are definitely right to be very angry, but don’t take matters into your own hands it’s just too much for anyone to manage so early when your are so shocked and traumatised. I contacted Compassionate Friends and they will help you, they helped me. Take care of yourself as you best you can, you are in shock. I know I was for months, and still a lot of the time. Don’t be hard on yourself xxx
