I feel everyone's pain. No I have not lost a mother or a father yet. However, on Thanksgiving 7 yrs this Thanksgiviing is when my son passed. My Alan, my everything, was 15 1/2 yrs of age. My son became medically involed when he was 3 yrs old w/ Cancer. After going into remission after 3 1/2 yrs of chemo therpy. Alan started having every seizire knowen in the medcial books, etc. Well when I woke up early a.m. to feed him ( my son/alan ) had a G-tube put in ,and I over slept. Alan passed away of a major heart attack.
It is still very diffcult to celebrate - Thanksgiving, Christmas.
all of you are in my thoughts this Christmas Day. Kelly / PiggyView Thread
This time of the year I start to get tear-up. I lost my son 7 yrs this Thanksgiving, and then on top of my greif on Nov. 4th,10 I go in for major back surgery. My back injuries started many yrs. ago due to me lifting my son wrong ( not bending knee's, and other clients I cared for w/ disabties) My son devloped a " rare sizure disorder " after he went into remission w/ Leukemia, more to story. No, No, I do have any regreats lifting my be-loved Angel. That is a little why I made the date on the 4th of Nov. so I can spend Thanksgiving w/ friend/caretaker, B/F, and family will come over to visit ( due to me not able to go any where for 2-3 mo's. Plus I can cry w/ my support (s) and not listen to my mother say - " kelly it is time for the grieving to be over, and go on in life " No one can tell mom or dad when the greiving is over when you have lost a child!!! We do what we canin our lives, but B-Days, annversary dates you are allowed to one min @ time, any way we choose. Forgive me saying that about my Mother, but she really is like that thanksgiving, christmas. Everyone are in my thoughts durning the hoidays. hugs to all Thank you for letting me vent.

Dearest Brittany416, No you do not have to be " little Miss Sunshine ) My advice - Take one day at a time, and take care of YOU... My son passed 7 yrs ago from rare seizure dis-order. Let me tell you I still have good and bad days. May is very diffcult mo. because it is my B-day, then Mother's day,then my son's B-day. Here are some great resorces on-line - 1.MISS Foundation 2.The Compassionate friends - on-line, and the hospital have access to the monthly meetings. 3. www.bereavementresources.com Bereavement also has a magizine for resonable price. My thoughts are w/ you , and take care of you. If you need to nap take a nap. I am more then happy to talk w/ you if you wantView Thread
Good Morning, My thoughts go out to everyone who are grieving.
The month of May is on of diffcult mo's. ( I lost my son 6 yrs ago due to rare seizure dis-order. On thanksgiving night the seizures caused my son to have another stroke, and then heart attack. My angle was 15 1/2 yrs of age)
Back to why May is a diffcult Mo. My B-day on the 7th of May Mother's Day May 13 th is my son's b-day. May cause's my spinal cord injury, my pain, to flair up. My depreesion goes way up. Bless my Mother she wants to keep me very busy in May, but she is also very controling. I just do not want to do anything w/ my mother anymore in the month of May. Well then "Thansgiving " is a whole other story. I would enjoy very much chating w/ other's. Thank youView Thread
