About Me:
I am a 51 year old married mother of 3 and grandmother of 3. I suffer from Panic Disorder/OCD, & Clinical depression. I am not doing well at all and feel I cant make it through this, like I am going to wind up in an institution or go crazy, I cant look at her pictures, her playroom, or eat because she loved to eat so much.
About my Loss:
Last week my 3 year old Grabndaughter Olivia had an astham attack at our house on our watch, it was her first attack, but she has alwaysbeena sickly child, they could never really find out what was wrong with her. she was in the hospital for a few things, she needed thumb surgery, something was wrong with her eye, but ahs was always sucha a happy little girl, regardless of having to take meds masks, etc, 2 times per day. She was the love of my life, along with my other 2 grandchildren here older brother Dylan, and her cousin Michaels 11 months. She was fine that night she stood with us, and then in the morning she couldnt breath, but she never stopped, the 911 got here in 6 minutes, and by then, she stopped breathing and they had to intubate her in the ambulance, after many tests they realized her brain had been deprived of oxygen, and her brain cells started to die, then they did am MRI and realized the worse was happening. enentually, the machine was breathing for her totally, and they turned if off when she was declared brain dead.

Hi Patricia
 My name is Connie and I lost my only son in a tragic car accident 5 months ago. He was seventeem. I am so sorry for your horrible loss. I can ralte to the overwhelming feeling of grief consuming your while being. I sometimes feel I am going to go instantly insane when that nightmare reality seeps in. It helps me to read meditations from others who are making their way through life with this loss. Being outside and hiking help me. I know it is hard and I just wanted to send you a cyber hug. Try to have faith that your grand daughter is still alive in spirit and is with you and help you get through things when you just don't know how you will. This is the only way I survive.Energy never dies it just changes form. And the love you shared with her will always be there and never change.

Sometimes we can feel absolutely helpless and hopeless.

But when all is said and done, it is ok to grieve, but you also need to develop HOPE.

Here is a scripture that describes a resurrection of a twelve year old

* Mark 5:41,42 — And, taking the hand of the young child, he said to her: “Tal′i·tha cu′mi,” which, translated, means: “Maiden, I say to you, Get up!” 42 And immediately the maiden rose and began walking, for she was twelve years old. And at once they were beside themselves with great ecstasy. *

Notice that the family "they were beside themselves with great ecstasy"

One day we will be reunited with our loved ones. I know that doesn't take the pain away, but it does give us HOPE!

Loss of a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide

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

Sibling Loss

This group is for anyone that has lost a brother or sister. Sibling loss is often minimized and people don't realize how devastating losing a sibling can be. I lost my older sister and my life will never be the same. She was my only sibling, I looked up to her, I went to her for everything. I lost my past, present and future. It is traumatic.See More
