Profile Information

About Me:
I have worked as a social worker, counsellor for over 20 years with various populations. These include child protection, adult protection, family crisis, and addiction. Most recently working with men in addiction. I am also certified to teach yoga and have been certified for 8years, however I am more of a practitioner and have been for over 30 yrs. I am from a Spanish mother and Sri Lankan father. I have been married 21 years with two children... son ( 19 years at passing) and daughter 15 years old.
About my Loss:
I found my beautiful 19 year old son, deceased in his bed 7 months ago. My beautiful daughter was with me. He was healthy, vibrant and excited about life. He did not struggle with substances, he tried a common substance the evening before to calm his muscles and help sleep. This had a therapeutic dose of fentynol which his body had an allergic reaction to (coroners report). The loss and the trauma are great, I suffer daily but function. Lots of support but in so much emotional pain.

Gita, I want to protect my son from the ugly things being said about him. Yes, he struggled with addiction. But I am so proud of him because before his wreck, he had been clean for over 2 months. When they did blood tests at the hospital before the organ center looked for recipients. He was clean. He had such a good heart. He would do anything he could to help anyone, even if he didn't like them. Now none of them will help me with his headstone while talking about how bad I am for letting him be there with it. So yeah, this experience sucks like a cheap hooker.

Gita, to my soul I am so very sorry for the loss of your son. I know your pain and I share it with you. I'm trying to find some logical reason why we have had to put our children down into their permanent beds. We all need a hug.

Late February is a challenging time of year for me.  Jen’s birthday is the 23rd and serves as an annual reminder of all of the potential that was lost…Her’s (mainly), mine, the world’s honestly.  This year she would be 52…It is increasingly hard to imagine, through all of the iterations possible, what she could have become, what was to be her (significant) impact on the world.That being said, things, emotions, have largely settled down since I committed a potential version of what could have…See More

"I'm so sorry to hear that - that must have been such a shock and definitely not fair. Yes, I find it's hard to go on without them. The best thing I've come up with is try to live the rest of my life for them - honoring them and their…"
