Hey everybody, i'm Erin. I have a lot of experience dealing with death and missing my loved ones.....so far in my 24 years on this planet i've lost a teacher, my grandparents on my dad's side, my great aunt, one of my sisters, my high school mentor, and my grandparents on my mom's side. Feel free to pm me if you need to talk, i'm here for everybody! Losing someone never gets easier, so we have to lean on eachother.
My name is Rachele. I am 38 years old, a mother of 2 wonderful little children. I lost my mother in August of 2007. She was only 65 when died unexpededly and I miss her dearly. She was more than a mom but also a friend. Loosing a close family member is a pain no one understands, unless you have been there.
I joined the bereavement forum to find people who understand and care. I found that here and would like to give the same to others, who are also experiencing the pain of grief. I believe it is through the wonderful people we meet that gives our life meaning and purpose. I hope you will find this site as comforting and supportive as I have. Love Rachele
Hello, my name is Sue. I have had many many losses in my family. Both parents, all grandparents, 2 brother-in-laws, one brother, and my most devastating loss was my son.
My son Brandon was assaulted on Dec. 23rd 1997.He was hospitalized and had therapy for 19 months. After that he came home. He was quadriplegic and needed full time care. Brandon had horrible pain issues with this spinal cord injury. This is rare but they were able to treat the pain with an intrathecal pump which delivered morphine in intervals to his system. Brandon became tired of the morphine because of the drugged up feeling it left so he wanted to have it stopped. The clinic did not monitor him closely enough and he went into morphine withdrawal and died.
My family and I were totally devastated after going through so much with him and then have him die like this. My grief journey has been like a horrible roller coaster but I can tell you I survived the gut wrenching pain and am able to at least except that he's no longer with us.
I really would like to be of help to anyone having a hard time. Helping others is good for my soul as well as theirs.
