I do appreciate your response.  I just feel numb and don't know where to turn.  I guess I just need to have someone to lean on I guess.  It has really been hard to keep my strength up.  I don't want to show too much emotion, I have to be strong for my family.  But I am like  "Who is going to fix me?"  you know?  I guess I just need to talk....

I have no experience with this problem.  I am sorry that you are going through this right now.  Hopefully things will get better.

In our town we have bereavement support groups that are beneficial.  Several churches have them and you don't have to be a member to go.  There you meet with others in the same situation and hsve a chance to share and heal.  Again I am so sorry you are facing this and while you need to be strong, you also need to give yourself a chance to feel.  Don't hold it in.

Hello and welcome to the group, I kind of have experience, one of mine had rat poison on them and the police was called and they did say they were going to take their life, they went to a hospital and got some help and has moved forward and has a good life now, I know from where your sitting it feels like the end but its not, your child can move on with some help, there are support groups out there for you and your child and we are always here if you need to talk or vent.
