Could you live without your child...

Today we had a close call my dd and dh were walking down the sidewalk hand in hand a few feet ahead of me when suddenly a car swerved onto the side walk in between us. Literally almost hitting us all but from my end I couldn't tell if they'd been hit in that split second & the first thought that came to my mind was if they were crushed to just please let me collapse right here right now. I of course ignored it and ran around the car to see if they were okay but I'm sure now if something where to happen to DD I would be unable to continue living. Do you think you'd be able to survive the loss of your only child?

That is something no one knows until they have to live it. Hopefully no one ever has to again.

I honestly don't know if I could survive that. I hope I never have to find out.

I don't think I would consider it "living." I would exist for the sake of my other son, but I would be destroyed. I think losing a child would be the absolute worst tragedy someone could experience.

I have two kids, if I lost them both that would be it for me. If I lost one I would have to go on for my living child, it would be very hard to regulate after losing one.

Yes. I have more than one child.

I'd probably drown in the bottom of a bottle, to tell the truth.

If something happened to my child I'm sure I would not want to go on with life but I have 3 children so I would have to for my other children.if it was all of my children I'm not sure since I have never had to think about it

No. 

Obviously i could still physically be alive. 

but everything inside of me would die with her :( 

It would take a long time, and a lot of therapy to make me whole again
