How can I ever look to the future without my son . I dont want a future without him .
I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. Thank you for sharing this with us. I’m just giving your thread a gentle, “bump” for you - hopefully someone will have some thoughts to share.
Take good care,
I am in the same situation as you…however it’s 5 months since I lost my son, today it feels like 5 hours. What I try and do is take time to reflect on the good times, easier said I know. I’m not sure how I have got this far, by digging deep every single day. We can and will survive this with all the good and kind people on this site. It helps me so much and I hope it will help you. Sending big hugs xx
I didn’t want to read and run. I can’t even begin to imagine what you are going through. I’m losing my husband who is just 43 and we have two young kids, but losing a child is still on another level. Are there any support groups near you, specifically for others who have lost a child? Xx
Thank you for replying .
I’m sorry for what you are going through . I hope you get the support you need .
I have attended support groups for survivors of suicide as this is how my son left us . I’ve found them very helpful .
The compassionate friends also run groups especially for the loss of a child so I will go to one of those next month .
I do find support groups good as these people understand what you are going through .
Take care xx
Suicide must be one of the hardest things to go through (I was a Samaritan for a bit years ago). I’m so glad you’ve found some support groups. It can be a real relief to find others that truly understand rather than those well meaning words of “I totally understand” when clearly they don’t x
@Nori it’s hard enough losing a child and suicide just adds so many layers to the grief .
I’m just hoping in time we can learn to live along side it and have a reasonable life .
I will never truly be happy again though .
It’s only been 8 weeks so still can’t believe it’s happened .
Sorry to unload on you when you’ve got so much going on yourself .
I’ve found this forum a godsend .
I hope it helps you too
Suicide in itself is hard but for it to also be your child is even harder. Glad you’ve found the site helpful. I’ve only just come across it myself x
This forum is my life line. Had a really bad day after reading the bundle from the coroner. Xx
