Youngest son doesn't want to have anything to do with me
Thanks for sharing your thoughts and reaching out.
I really can't see anything abnormal about your reaction and I'm sure that you would eventually discover who he is seeing. It's all out in the open now - which I feel is a good thing, everyone can find their place and begin to move on.
How are you feeling about daily life?
Thanks so much for your reply and sharing your burden.
It sounds like there are a few people around you grieving, including you. The loss of any relationship takes a lot of getting used to. You mentioned shock at how your husband can move on to another relationship so quickly, I wonder if this is the start of a process of grieving for the loss of the relationship and the changes that come along with that.
My heart goes out to you at the loss of your son, I can't even begin to imagine what that would be like, but I know it would be quite a shock to begin with.
Nene have you thought about talking to someone professionally about what you're going through at the moment? Do you have a regular doctor or counsellor that helps you manage your depression? There are a lot of resources at the bottom of this page if you need to find someone.
Of course, that's only a suggestion and I know that writing your thoughts and feelings in the forums can be very helpful. Sometimes both a professional and the forums can be wonderful for helping get through some really tough times.
yes I have decided to seek professional help. I think it will help me make sense of it all. I did some analysis on myself a few weeks ago, my bad points, good points etc. that helped too.
thank you for responding to me. It has helped me to not feel alone.
We're all in this together! Please keep us up to date with how you are going. It's an honour that I could just be there and help you feel less alone.
I'm sorry that things aren't looking up for you at the moment. Keep hanging in there.
You mentioned professional help in a previous message - has that progressed for you?
