About my Loss:
Lost my 23 year old son on November 9 2017. Buried him on his 24th birthday. Struggled with addiction for over 3 years. Still waiting for toxicology report. Found a fentanyl patch in his mouth during the autopsie. Had just moved out of his halfway house and into an apartment 3 days prior.

Thanks for your honesty, and I feel the same. Personally, I hate it when people say it is our choice, to look forwards or back, etc, partly because that sounds like they are blaming the bereaved for feeling sad and missing their loves, and…"

Hi, everyone,I have been going to a grief group since I felt I needed some direction to "get a life".The leader is a great guy and has some wisdom that for the moment I consider. He told us that it is our choice of how we spend the rest of our lives without our loves. We can either look forward or backward.

"Hello Joe. I am so teribly sorry for the loss of your beloved. My dear husband died 2 years ago. Unlike your wife he would never go to the doctor, just worked 6/7 days a week waiting for the day he could retire. He died 2 weeks before his 64th…"
