Hello all. I lost my dad 9 years ago this coming July this mother’s day I lost my best friend. I am having a hard time copying. When I lost my dad I had by best friend who was like a sister to me to help me cope. He took his own life and I was the one to find him and I am sad to admit I never got over it to this day it still stays in my mind but she got me through the bad days. Then on mother’s day of this year I said goodbye to my sister my friend well my everything and I feel so alone. I do have a therapist & I even am involved in a grief support group in my town however I still feel so alone. Many people have said they went through something similar with losing a loved one to cancer but I have not met anyone who shared in the loss of a parent to suicide. I stumbled across this online and decided to give it a try. I just feel so alone now especially without my best friend she was really my only close friend. I am sorry for everyone’s loss as well and sending you all a hug and warm wishes

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also…See More
