The loss of my daughter

I am a mother of 3 but in April 2019 we lost our beautiful daughter Claire she was the middle child and she was 43 years of age …She was a happy lovely child but due to the pressure of life.and some mental health issues she started drinking a lot which caused her to have more issues eg.head injury and epilepsy .She went into hospital March 15th 2019 and after a week the consultant told us death would imminent within 60 days we had to go to hospital every day for about a month and watch my beautiful precious daughter fade away it was the most horrific t bing l had ever done in my life .We were praying for a miracle but it never came we always supported her throughout her whole life .l just can’t get over it l cry most days especially when l am sitting doing nothing l beat myself up because l was not there holding here hand when she passed away l can,t forgive myself and keep reliving the the days she was dying Lt was our 2nd Christmas without her and missed her so much .l know people will say she brought this on herself and she could have stopped but she did have help from everyone but her demons got the better of her .l miss and think about her every day and don,t think l,ll ever get over her death l will never be the same l feel guilty if l laugh l miss her so much people might say but you have 2 other children which l dearly love but there is a part of my heart which is broken.

Hi Jan4
I cant relate to the grief you feel for the passing of your clearly much loved daughter. I dont think someones passing is something we ever get over. There are memories daily but without those memories we might forget who they were. Mental health is not easy to overcome I know people with serious issues and no ammount of help or drugs helps suppress the obvious mental pain and struggle they have. Taking their own life is an escape succumbing to whatever gets them through be it drink or drugs is both a blessing to them and torture to those left behind.
I can only relate because I see a cousin struggle and part of me wishes them peace and the only way they will get that is to leave this life.
Its a sad way to live. You know you did all you could but sometimes people just cant do what we want them to.
I hope you find some peace very soon

Thank you for replying you have certainly made me realise that my daughter was not the only struggling with her every day life it is just so sad there are so many people out there struggling every hour of every day .l hope one day l can find peace and remember the happy times with her .
