It’s almost 28 years since the sudden death of my 2 year old son
But I can’t get over it
Every birthday every Christmas every anniversary my head fills with all the pain and heartache
My head makes me relive that awful morning in vivid detail over and over
Like a video on loop that I can’t turn off
I can’t take it anymore

Dear @Donna.m.T

Welcome to the Community. I am sorry to hear you are struggling. You are not alone. There is help out there. Have you considered one to one counselling or talking to your GP as to how you are feeling and how they can support you?

There is an organisation called The Compassionate Friends who support bereaved parents. It would be worth having a look at their website for more information and support.

There is a topic Losing a child on this forum which will connect you to community members who have experienced what you have gone through.

The Samaritans are available 24/7 and offer a free service for someone to talk to or there is a text service organisation called Shout on 85258 who can offer support for people who are struggling.

Please continue to reach out and take care.

I am so sorry.

Nothing ever prepares us for the loss of a child. You have coped well so far. Your son would be so proud of you for not giving up.

There is an organisation (you may have heard of it) The Compassionate Friends. It was set up by bereaved parents for bereaved parents. You can easily find tbe details on the Internet.

I hope you will find some help and support through that.

God bless you
