Has anyone lost an adult child?

I don't know how to deal with the sadness I'm feeling. The ache in my heart is unbearable.

Hi Mid Pen,

I have all the pain and feelings you are experiencing, my heart is broken and sore and I keep breaking down with tears and find my life unbearable.

I keep thinking, "How will we go on? How will we have Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, all the firsts since her death?" It seems beyond what I can imagine and it literally makes my heart hurt to think of it all. How old was your child? Mine was 37.

33 with three grandchildren 2,4,8. If it was not for my wife and two sons 20,25. I really don't think my life would be worth continuing.

Mine had no children. I think it would be easier, somehow, if she'd have had children because I'd have them to hold on to, but how awful it must be for those little ones. When I think that I'll never see her again, it just overwhelms me.

My FIL never did get over his daughter dying. I think he mourned for her everyday. She had 5 children but they never knew how to respect anyone. So sad. Such a wonderful man.
