I have been suffering from depression for a long time now because of the loss of my beautiful baby boy, burns, domestic violence and other health problems and miscarriages. 21 years I have seemed help and been put on medication it is a hard road to face alone or even in what you thought was a good relationship (but it wasn’t), we as people don’t realise the inner strength we have or courage till we need it. After my son passed I didn’t think I could go on I felt my heart being ripped apart but I did get through it da by day, I will never get over my sons passing put I cope everyday, if you feel this way talk to some one a friend,co workers even your family or a professional there is nothing wrong with asking for help…please don’t hurt yourself and especially your family, if they don’t help look up groups PLEASE. I’m glad I asked for help for my children’s sake and mine.

  • So sorry for your loss. No parent should face burying their child. I applaued you for courage and wise words. It’s fantastic that you are turning all your negative past experiences and helping bring awareness to an issue that still unfortunately carries stigma.

    • Thank you so much..it is hard to carry on but we do and I hope that I have helped at least on person speaking out.. I hope very soon people see past the stigma and help people.xx


  • I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful son and the terrible time you had to endure.
    I am so pleased that you reached out for help.
    Life does go on but there is always part of your heart that only belongs to your angel.
    Thank you so much for sharing your personal story and for thinking of others.
    LOVE and special wishes to you :-)

    • Thank you so much. I will always have my beautiful baby in my heart and as my angel. It is hard to keep your head up but with help I’ve been able to do that.xx. Much love to you and your family xx


  • Great words of advise and i am so happy that you have found the strength to go on. Its never easy to have lost a child. But as i tell my kids they have a angel looking over them and procecting them from above. My thoughts are with you at your loss.. But you are a strong person and now have a angel from above. Stay strong and do what ever it takes to do the best you can for yourself and your kids….Im am glad you have found the support you need and remember we are all here for you if you ever need it….and your family…

    • Aww thank you so much I appreciate that xx and like wise and yes we have our beautiful angels and I know my son is forever in my heart.. We are all strong xx I wish you and your family well xx

      • It takes courage to post and share your story. Everyone needs help at some stage and there is not stigma in getting help. Wishing you and your family well. x


  • I’m so sorry for the loss of your son.
    I’m very proud of you for seeking help.
    Thank you for sharing your story


  • Talking from experience its never easy to have lost a child, but as i tell my kids a lot they have a older sibbling they have never meet. Their gurdian angel, it took a while to have another kid but having said that it was the best thing i ever did to take that step. Yes their ws a lot of fear especially as the next he was born early.. but then we had another and another with no issues. Nothing ever takes the pain of loosing a child but getting help, helps you cope with it and allows you to talk about them…The angel you lost… And to be the parent you know you can be…

    • Very very true it is hard and I was so scared I would lose another child to SIDS
