I don't want to hurt anyone with my question.

But have you ever thought at a scary moment that your child might die, that this was it for you if he dies your life is over just might end yours as well?

I thought my son had gotten into some pills only a few that were in my purse, I freaked out totally thought I just killed my kid, turns out no these pills if he did take them arent that harmful to him. But I didn't know that during the wait time, and I cried and cried and cried even after finding out. And I told my husband "I keep it together for our son, I realized today if it wasn't for him I don't think I would even be breathing today, if I loose him thats it I loose it" it was scary to realize that, through all the close calls you have with your child and then to realize that come so close in your head with that thought scared me more then anything has ever scared me.

  • Yup I've thought about this. My dd hasn't done anything yet that has tried to kill her but I've already informed my hubby that if something does happen to her & she's kidnapped or killed that he better be on the phone calling the dr to get me an immediate anti anxiety rx cuz I'm gonna lose my shit! IMO all moms have these thoughts, just means you love your kids soooo much & recognize how incomplete your life would be w/out them.

  • My 6 week old gave me a huge scare at delivery... All of a sudden his heart stopped beating and the had to rush me in for an emergency c-section. I was scared to death that I had lost my pride and joy before I ever got to meet him!!!

  • My son at 18 months got into his diaper bag, opened a CHILDPROOF cap, and drank and entire bottle of children's Motrin.
    My daughter at 10 months flipped her high chair over and broker her femur. Thank God that was all she broke.

  • i can honestly say that if it wasnt for my daughter i wouldnt be alive i had lost a baby and the pure burden of it being my first child i had lost in it self almost killed me. i tried killing myself by and my ex found me and took me to the emergency room i was treated and released. well i had planned on taking a trip by myself and trying again just a few months later and before my little get away i started having pregnancy symptoms and it was my little life saver. so i completely feel you on the thought of if it wasnt for my kids i wouldnt be here and yes i know my actions were stupid and selfish but that was then and i have three beautiful children to live for now

  • I often think about this when I watch the news and see parents killing their kids, incomprehensible to me, and when others dissapear on a daily basis. I can't even begin to imagine what it would be like without my three grown ault kids.

  • Aww I'm glad your son is ok we all have a few moments like that whether they take some pills think they ate the diaper rash cream or whatever hard lesson to learn. Just makes us realize how much more careful we should be.
    I laways thought that too if one of my children should die that would be the end of me. I dreampt that my son got hurt somehow for yrs I remembered that dream I can't anymore he's 30 now and it was when he was little but one never knows I was scared for ever that he was going to die. I thought yep this dream os telling meto be prepared Thank God it never happened.
