    Sorry about your loss, its clear he was loved and still is. Hope you have someone to lean on. Having anxiety is understandable. A doctor will understand and prescribe you some medications to help you through the difficult time of healing dont be afraid to go to the doctor.

    You can also try to look for some loss support group as there are some groups in the area, maybe hearing about other peoples stories would help reduce some of the anitexy

    Suicide is something one will not understand on why the person did it. Everyone has their own pain/reasons. The brain is not working right is what I only have the answer for. I'm suicidal and do think about it everyday but am holding onto life just because my best friend is the dog and I dont want to abadon her

    Nothing prepares you for the loss of a child and losing one to suicide is even more difficult. Please reach out to support groups to help you survive this. If there are no support groups in your community there are several online. It is helpful to talk to others that share in this experience no matter how awful it may be. Knowing you are not alone and others have been there can make a difference. My heart goes out to you. :hug:

    I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot even imagine the pain you are going through. I just lost a fiance to suicide on May 13 and that is hard enough. I am so sorry. To lose a son to suicide has to be 1000 times more horrific than what I am going through right now. Sending you prayers!!!

    I have a child and can not imagine how you feel. I wish I could off you you a cup of coffee or a help about the house until things change. I'm sorry we as a society can't do more to hold each other up.

    It is now 14 days since my son took his life. I feel like even though I am alive I am really gone. It feels like there is no air anymore. I am lost.

    How are you coping?

    Hello Rosiecat

    I have not suffered a loss of family to suicide, but I have lost close friends. So I know there is a big difference, but I wanted to respond to you. Grieving is a long process. And everyone grieves differently. For me, it was a matter of one step at a time, one hour at a time until I could breathe again. You will never completely be the same, but it will get better. I am hoping that a mother who has lost a child can answer your question more thoroughly from experience. But know this is a supportive community of people who are in all levels of wellness and there is much support here. Let me say I am so sorry for your loss, it must be so difficult to lose a child. I hope you find solace.

    I'm so sorry, to both liveordie and to Rosiecat. My stepdad died by suicide, it will be 21 years at the end of this month, and it still hurts. So I know what you are going through. If you need to talk about anything, I'll be here to listen.
