Loss of my second child

I lost my daughter age 15 in 2006 when she was hit by a car. And 4 weeks ago i lost my son age 30. He was fount in his hotel room. So far its down to heart failure. I dont feel like im excepting it. My heart is broke. My chest feels like i cant breath. I have 3 other children. But feel like giving up. I am lost.


I am so incredibly sorry to hear what you’re going through and I can’t begin to imagine how you feel, but there are many others here who will understand. This is a safe and supportive community where you can share exactly how you feel with no judgement.

Are you getting any support at the moment? Perhaps from a close friend, a family member, or even your GP? It’s really important to have someone you can reach out to, to talk about how you’re feeling, rather than holding it all inside.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know if there’s anything I can do to support you.

Take care,

Dear Jayne
I am so very sorry that such tragedy should visit you twice. Sometimes life just seems so cruel and almost impossible to come to terms with but somehow you will find the strength to get through this…it is very early days so you will feel lost and alone but try just to live in the moment and remember that love never dies or is eradicated. I will remember. you and your family in my prayers as will many others. Take care and keep posting.x

Dear Jayne…I am so…so sorry for the loss of both your son and and daughter…We lost our son in December last year and the pain was and still is indescribable so I know the grief you are feeling, but for you to have to endure the loss of a child twice in one lifetime is so totally wrong and unfair …I know words don’t help but I am truly sorry for you…Take care of yourself…With love Marina xx

Dear Jayne,
I am so sorry that you have lost your beautiful children. I lost my beloved daughter in February but I can not imagine the grief of losing 2 children.
Someone else posted that our loved ones continue to walk beside us, they are simply following a different path until we meet again and I have found that enormously comforting.
I am thinking of you and sending you love xxx

Dear Jayne, I can’t imagine the pain you are suffering. To lose two children is just too terrible. We are lost our son, Daniel last year and the pain of them gone never seems to end. Keeping you in my thoughts. Wynne

Hi Jayne,
I’m so sorry to hear that you have lost two of your children, that is so terrible. The Compassionate Friends is an organisation that offers support groups for bereaved parents - you can find what they offer in your area here: https://www.tcf.org.uk/content/in-your-area/

Dear Jayne,
I have only just seen your post - I am not very good at navigating around this site. I’m so very sorry for the tragedies you have suffered and I hope you have now managed to find some support and help. I lost my daughter, my only child in September and I understand the despair you feel - we are asked to bear the unbearable and I still cannot see a future for me without my precious daughter.
I hope you found some help,
