Loss of a Child

+ enlarge

On January 13, 2007, I lost a son, 24 years old, to an overdose of drugs. He was living out of state at the time of his death and I was unaware of the severity of his problem. I am sad and heartbroken as there is nothing worse than losing a child. I am in therapy and go to a grievance group but nothing seems to help and I am unable to function other than going to work. The rest of the time I stay in the house and isolate. I have two other children, one who lives out of state and one who lives close by.

If there is anyone out there who has experienced the loss of a child to an overdose or otherwise and can share how you cope and deal with the loss, I would appreciate it if you would write to me.

Thank you.
