Struggling to cope

Hi I’m not really why I’m on here to be honest I suppose I’m just a bit lost. 18 months ago our baby boy max was born at 26 weeks but unfortunately he passed away after 2 hours. We were in and out of hospital for the month leading up to the birth which was traumatic in itself but tragically it ended so badly for us. I feel so alone at the moment and it’s difficult to try and move on from it. My wife’s family have been amazing but I think cause I’m not as close to my family I don’t think that helps with my loneliness. I’m not sure what it is I’m looking for just think I need to find a way to get through this

Hi Steve1983

I read your post & im so sorry for your loss of baby Max
Life can be so hard & cruel
Sorry you feel so alone.
Have you tried talking to anyone about how you feel? I know its very difficult & painful devasting
But have you tried telling your wife or friends family how your feeling?
thought about counselling or sue ryder counselling on this forum?
I know how afwfull devasting it can be
It does get easier through time
I lost twins baby boys long time ago was
6 &1/2 months into the pregnancy
Still hurts when it comes to anniversaries christmas etc
You & your wife will get through this in time
Sorry again for your loss
Take care
