I am a veteran stay at home Mom. I have four children, one of whom was in the Airforce but is now deceased. I almost hate to put that as people shy away from me. So any advice as to how to incorporate this without people running away from me would be great. It's difficult because my son was a part of me and now he is gone and no one wants to talk to me. I have three other children who are great and we have a great relationship, do lots of things together...just looking to connect with others who are Moms and understand the crazed state of mind we are often in from doing so many things for our families...Looking forward to an answer.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your son. I mean that sincerely, even though I know the words sound cheap. I'd second amandajoy21's answer about looking into groups based around dealing with loss. I'd also like to say I know exactly what you mean if it feels like people sometimes shy away. I lost a parent very early in life, and when people found that out when I was younger, they tended to feel awkward and withdraw. My daughter has been battling an extended illness the last few months and even that seems to drive people away. The good news is, you'll know you've found real friends when they don't shy away when you need them most. Good luck. I wish you all the best. :)
