Thank you so much for reaching out to me, and i am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I appreciate the advice and words of encouragement on this incredibly lonely journey. I will look and try to connect with those willing and available, realizing each of us are at different points and paths in this nightmare.
It isn't one day at a time..it is one minute, one hour, one day in our world. I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. When I first found this page I was saddened by all the beautiful young lives that had been "stolen" from this world. I was hesitant about putting my beautiful daughter Lisa on here. "She doesn't belong here" I kept telling myself. This is one group I never dreamed of being a part of and a group on one wants to join. But I can tell you the women I have met in this group saved my life. They showed me courage and strength and gave me hope that I could survive.They are the most compassionate group of women I have ever met. Many of us from this group are now on facebook, including our dear founder Debbie, in a group called Shut Up!I am still grieving! which anyone is welcome to join. Again I am so very sorry for your loss and know you are not alone. P.S. We don't have any local meetings...it is all online. There is POMC and also The Compassionate Friends (which covers loss of a child by any manner of death) that offer local support groups. If you want let me know where you are located and maybe I could help you find one.
