MY son died

(779 Posts)

Don't know how to say it, but need to put it down. My beautiful son was found dead last night. I don't know what to do. He is 22 but still my baby, how do you begin to process something like this?

So, so sorry. I think that you just have to get through the next hour, and then the next, for now. Don't worry about processing it. Heartbroken for you.

I'm genuinely so sorry to hear this has happened.

I have no words, but suspect they wouldn't help much anyway.

You, your son and your family are in my prayers xxx

Mumof2teenboys I'm so very sorry. What an awful, awful thing to happen. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

Like others have said, I think taking one day, even one hour, at a time is the only way. However on a practical note, trying to get some sleep and eating regularly are important - your body has had an awful shock and will need nourishment. I would get in touch with your GP - they will be able to prescribe temporarily sleeping tablets if you feel you need them. Of course I'm not advocating drugs as a sticking plaster, but your sleep is vital in these early days. Keeping your GP informed that your family has experienced this trauma would be a good move in any case, I think.

Cruse bereavement care can offer support and bereavement counselling if / when you feel up to it. As I said before though, it's very early days. Please lean on any friends and family as much as you can.

I'm so sorry, I wish I could say something useful but I honestly sorry is all I can think of & it just seems so inadequate. X
