303 days

Post by Angelikoula » Thu Sep 07, 2017 1:06 am

How is it possible that I've lived 303 days since I got the news that my daughter died?
It doesn't feel like that many days but yet it feels like a lifetime.

I hate it. I wake up hating it every single day and I go to bed hating the fact that my beautiful girl is gone.
There is literally no rest for me. My thoughts are consumed with thoughts of my daughter.
How did this happen .. WHY did this happen? Why couldn't I have stopped it.
I wish things had gone differently.
I wonder what she would be doing right now if she were alive .. would she be in school?
Would she be working or would she have taken a year to travel the world?

The reality is that she wouldn't have done any of those things - she was a young girl with a serious illness because drug addiction is a disease.
It robs people of their lives - it robs families of their loved ones.
It plain and simply sucks and I miss her every single minute of the day.

The pain of losing a child is unimaginable. I honor your courage in simply showing up here to share your pain with us. I pray that you will be held up by your higher power and wrapped in his loving arms until you are able to see the light again.

So very sorry for your loss and your grief.
It is the all too real greatest fear of all of us here on the forum. And I am so very sorry you are going through it now.
If it is any comfort, you and your beloved daughter are in my thoughts and prayers tonight.
