Lost my 6 month baby boy

I lost my precious baby boy on 19th December at exactly 6 months.He was my world and happiest loving wee boy

I feel lost without him and no idea at times what to do feel guilty for everything I’m doing like if I get up out bed or even for breathing myself.No idea if normal or if this guilty of getting up for my other kids will ever go away


Hello @Cher86,

I am so sorry for the devastating loss of your baby boy. Thank you for bravely starting this thread and reaching out.

You say you are feeling guilty for everything. Feeling guilt like this is normal when we’re grieving, and it’s a feeling I’m sure a lot of our members will relate to. You are not alone.
