A High-Functioning Bereaved Parent

A High-Functioning Bereaved Parent | Grief | Scoop.it

So where am I now, 13 years after my 2 1/2 year old son, Jacob, died because of a brain tumor? One thing I can say is that my junk mail has no idea where I am.

It is always shocking to lose a child, but now it might be time to look forward, look at the half full glass instead of the half empty one and start slowly, one step at a time, to do something that you enjoy doing. I have lost both an infant and an adult son, as well as a husband who I lived with for over 50 years and who I loved dearly, so I know about loss. I have discovered that there were only two choices in life for me - to sink into a depression, or to move on. And, I chose the latter each time. Feel free to e-mail me at any time.
