Grief there is no time limit. It takes its course and form. One day its gone. Two years later it returns for a week... We grieve for ourselves and the missing we feel.

Petrena, Hi, My name is Eileen and I also lost a son. He was one month old. It's been 27 years ago. For 10 years I blamed myself. I had counseling for years. Know I think of him every day. what he looks like and what he may have been in this life. I did have 2 more children. I believe it was Gods will because I don't think I would had more. My daughter was a miracle because I had a tumor but 3 months later the tumor was gone. Then my daughter had a daughter, my daughter was told she would not be able to have children. Thank God doctors can be wrong. Then I had a son and he just had a son one year ago. I'm sorry about your great loss the way I deal with it is he's always a part of me and waiting for me when my time is to go home with God. I will pray and I will hold you in my arms. Eileen

It's totally understandable that you would still feel sad--death is the most difficult experience for humans to cope with and nothing could be harder than the death of a sweet, vulnerable child for a mother. Guilt, even though it's not your fault would complicate this. However, I would think that you should talk to a counselor, pastor or other mental health professional to help you work through this some more. Life IS precious and your life is precious, too and you don't deserve to suffer so much. You can feel better and move on with someone else to help you, so find that right person--you owe it to yourself and the others who love you. You could be suffering from depression and there is successful treatment for that. Good Luck and don't beat up on yourself for still feeling sad, no matter what others say.

So sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a child is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can go through. It takes strength to share your feelings and to seek comfort. Open to Hope is an open forum that allows people in all stages of the grieving process to share their experiences and provide hope for each other.
