Re: My 26 year old first born killed herself 3 weeks ago

(((Jill))) I'm very sorry that you have lost your dear daughter to suicide. My name is Tammy and I lost a son in 2008. It took a long time for me to find some normalcy in life again. Gentler days are ahead. Our thoughts are with you.

Re: My grief, guilt and anquish are overwhelming

((((Tre's Mom)))) Oh honey, you didn't do anything to deserve this. No one deserves this! I am so very sorry that you've lost your dear son to suicide. My name is Tammy and I too lost a son. I understand what this pain is like and how we irrationally blame ourselves or ask "what if?" It's natural to...

Re: Losing my Neighbor

I'm very sorry that you have lost such a wonderful neighbor to suicide. On the homepage there are two links to websites that have answers to many questions you may have right now. There is no one way to grieve, but the site lists many common feelings / thoughts people have after someone they love co...

Re: Getting harder instead of better

*gentle hugs* I'm very sorry that you've lost your son. My name is Tammy, and I too lost a son to suicide. The beginning of the grief journey is so excruciating. I didn't think I would survive it either. But somehow, you keep going. One hour at a time - sometimes five minutes at a time - and slowly,...

Re: I've found a way to help fight

Jimsmom, I'm so proud of you for doing an overnight walk. It was a great experience for me. Can you post the name of your walk so we can find your donation page? When I use the portal page, it takes me to my last walk - not yours. ?

I'll be looking for an update on the site.

Best wishes!

Re: She left me feeling Guilty!

(((Laura))) I am so sorry for the loss of your dear friend Lara. My name is Tammy and I lost my son Brian to suicide in 2008. He was also going through a bad break up with someone he cared deeply for, but that was not all he was going through. It doesn't sound like that was the only thing going on i...

Re: Memorial Quilt

I love this idea Jimsmom, it's lovely. Wherever did you find someone to make the quilt? Was it someone locally or did you have to ship the clothing to the place? Either way, it's quite inspiring. I know many of us moms have our children's clothing and just can't bare to part with them. This way, we ...
