Help for today & Hope for tomorrow

On July 25th my son gave his life trying to protect his best friend. He was stabbed and I was there after the stabbing while we waited for the police and ambulance. I did not realize until we were told that he was gone that I pretty much watched my son die in the street. My whole life has went to hell since. I left my house because this happened pretty much in front of it and I could stand to be there. My live-in boyfriend chose to stay and this has pretty much ruined our relationship. I can’t go back to work right now. I have horrible flashbacks, anxiety and depression. My best friend, her husband and my two daughters are pretty all the support I have. I’m feeling completely alone and losing my will to even get out of bed. I need someone to talk to.

Hi Kristy, I too have lost my son, my baby boy, he turned 20 on July 16,2018, he had never been sick and this was his first and last time being in a hospital, we had 20 days with him in ICU, I am lucky to have been there when he took his last breath and although your son's death has changed your life forever I am glad for you and for him that you were with him. Like you, it is a slow torture that I endure EVERY single day and my life will NEVER be the same. From one mother to another, I am here if you need to talk, I'll listen....
My son was killed on his motorcycle July 13. 2 months before his 22 birthday. He was in his prime, I am completely broken. Always will be. 2 min from home someone couldn't be bothered to stop at a stop sign.

Hi Kristy. my name is diane. I feel your pain aas I lost my only son too.I had alot of anxiety myself when he passed , kept waiting for my  turn. I was in such darkness, and it felt like I was in a whirlwind constantly. I too had depression, thats why I joined here 3 years ago.There hasnt been alot of help here lately, but I keep coming back for support. I know friends mean well, but unless you ve lost a child , no matter their age they cant unerstand what you are going through, sorry for the typos, I guess it is hard to type with tears falling. If you want someone to talk to who knows what you are feeling I am here. It does help us to talk , and then we dont feel quite as alone. I wish you strength, faith and  many prayers to you. Keep looking forward and cry when you need to.Grief seems to overcome you andconsume you if you let it. I walked around for one year after my son passed, in numbness and dont really remember getting through each day, but somehow by the grace of God I did,take care my friend...diane.
