Have you had to BURY one of your kids?Page 10 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
My heart truly goes out to you and yes I have been through it my daughter has been gone for 20 years now and I had a really bad time of it at first but I depended on God to see me through and He has. Do you have other kids? I do so that also made me realise for their sakes I had to continue living never mind that for the longest time I just didnt understand why she had to go. Just remember the time you had together and treasure it. God Bless you. Sandra47ok

My heart goes out to you....

I lost one child to stillbirth...14 years ago. I still think of her often, and get teary. She will alwways be in my heart.

It would be disrespectful for me to say I understand, that is a very personal pain. But I do know for me it is one of the hardest things I have had to experience. I hope you are getting grief counselling and other support.

Many bright blessings and comfort to you.

YEAIDD, you need to talk to a professional (counselor, psychiatrist, something like that). What you went through is one of the toughest things to deal with but you can't continue to let it eat the rest of your life away. You have other children to think of and family that loves you. Forget the embarassment or the worry or whatever is keeping you from getting help. Do what you need to do to start healing. It will eat you alive if you don't deal with it (constructively). Each day is a new day. Each day is a new start. My favorite quote is "I will not merely endure, I will prevail".
P.S. I haven't lost a child. My son has a severe birth defect and will eventually die (at a very young age). I deal with feelings like you everyday. Get help now before you can't.

You have my sympathy. While I have never had to bury my child, thank God, I understand loss. Have you talked with a grief counselor or therapist? What about antidepressants to get you over the hump?
