It will be three years in June since we lost our wonderful son, Todd, from pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome. He had always been healthy, so this was a terrible shock to us. I still cry every day, at unexpected…"
I am feeling this pain too. It is the same with me. My daughter died in 2010 today I cried for 3 hours. I am having trouble concentrating. I have another one getting married and try to function-carry on like nothing is wrong and the same thing…"
"Hi Barbara -
it was so good hearing from you. I need to hear from people who understand what I am feeling and going through. It really helps. For example, a very close friend of mine just celebrated her 60th birthday. Her…"
I too lost my only child April 5, 2010 he was a careful driver as he was on his motorcycle when a drunk driver took him from me and all the many people who will always love him.

"Gail, I am so sorry and so sorry that I truly understand.
It has been three years for us on Jan 16. As for as I am concerned, my life is over.
I just feel weak and sad.
I do not think that what once was normal ever will be again.
"Shannon, I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. Sadly, family members are the ones who seem to move on so fast and never seem to understand the horrendous pain of losing a child. I do not believe there is anything worse. I get…"
I also lost my youngest son Michael. It has been a year since that terrible night Oct 25, 2010. I also stay very close to home not wanting to go out, like you said a hermit. I struggle every day. Michael was just starting his senior year…"
"Guess I'm a little late, It's been a while since my last visit, life is nothing short of hectic most of the time. Since my son left this world, I've had to allow myself to grieve when 'convenient' , since we live with…"
I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. I can't imagine what it's going to be like two more years from now for me. I lost my only daughter (I have three sons younger than her) on December 6, 2010. In one month it will be a year. It is amazing to me that that much time has already gone by. I do good the majority of the time because I know it makes everyone else uncomfortable to show the way I really feel inside. That is why I'm so glad I found this site and I do have my mom that lost my brother, so she too understands. It helps to come here when I'm really hurting and talk to others and sometimes some of the other parents can say just the right thing at one of those awful moments and can make me feel better, even if it's only briefly.
Once again, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful boy.
