"I lost my Beautiful Daughter Samantha 05/10/2016"
Asked by Stacy H Seen by 126
It has been over 2 1/2 years since I lost my Beautiful 23 year old Daughter . The pain is just as unbearable and raw today,as it was the day tradegy hit our Family. I know it’s something you never get over, but learning how to live without my only Daughter! My best Friend! Has been a living nightmare. Somedays I still think, it’s a nightmare and I’m gonna wake up. I feel as though my 22 year old Son is being neglected, of the love and attention he deserves, because of my grieving. It was his only sibling, I know it hasn’t been easy for him either. I feel like I resent my Husband, because it appears he can deal with it better and live life . I get mad and tell him, I glad it was so easy for you to get over , that he acts like I buried a puppy in the back yard. I know it’s not easy for him. I say that out of anger , because I feel all alone, sitting at home. Because that’s what I chose. He begs me to go with him, I refuse. We started a 5013c nonprofit in my Daughters memory that he stays busy with getting people into treatment and we bridge the gap upon completion of treatment into sober living homes ,by paying their 1st months rent. I’ve gone away for mental health ,for 10 days after a sucide attempt . It seemed to help for about a month. Then it was back to laying on the couch in self pity. Can I get any ideas from anyone that has attended a support group for Parents that lost a Child to overdoses . I have a great group of Women that lost Children to overdoses, that would love to start something in my area. Everytime I ask about it, they say there trying to make a format, for the group. For example how to open it up, like with a pray or have a different Parent get up every meeting and introduce their selves and say a little about their Child and their loss and how they deal with it. I’ve never attended this kind of group. I have attended meetings for families dealing with addiction, when my Daughter was here. It is very needed in Pennsylvania. We lost 10 loved ones in a 72 period, just in Scranton. I apologize for being all over the place. I guess any suggestions with anything I shared, would be greatly appreciated.
