Thank u chrissie. I have amazing friends and family. I talk to them all the time and see them everyday but i just feel like im floating around waiting for something to happen. Mine and my little baby sons life will never be the same. I worry i wont be enough for my son and that i know i can never be whole again. Everything was just so normal in our happy little bubble and its been burst . Im just zombie like i feel hollow

hi ellie i'm glad that you have help from family and friends you will get through this because your a mum and your son especially at his age needs all your attention on him it's not easy to bring up a child by yourself but it can be done and it's rewarding you most certernly will be enough for your him because you love him and love is the best gift we give our children if we love them the road is easy you say you feel like a zombie thats how we feel when we are in grief for a long time gradually normal feelings come back but in the mean time you have to learn to cope without your love and make your son as happy as you can try to protect him from your sadness
we are here for you love hazelxxx

Hello ellie, yes you are havong all the emotions and the shock it takes time my love I promise that in time you will be able to make new plans for baby and yoursrlf, but this dosent come easy for us to do, you will hear all kinds of helpful advise but also some very stupid things, just ignore them. All of us here know first hand of all the why's, the how's and I am only now afger almost one year starting to accept the changes ahead. I cannot even think or imagine how it is to lose your love so young in years, l was blessed to have my hubby in my life for almost 38 years I'm now almost 60 but now its just me and my cat bani, I was terrified at first you know? Giuls was a gentleman and a loving husband and we cared for and loved one another vety deeplyand tbought we would grow old together so I was so frightened at first, frozen and in shock but it is getting better evety day, yes of course I cry and I will miss him till I see him again when I get called home. I speak to him daily and I don't hear his voice as such but I know that he is watchong over me and is wanting me to be happy and enjoy the rest of my 20years or so Your love is doing the same for you. Tom suggested that maybe to tell us all about your love then we sort of meet him, does that make sense love?
Anyway dear ellie, ee oldies here can maybe like mums and dads, we offer you all our support and love.
Love and hugs

His name was nathan and he had a cardiac arrest in the early hours of the morning. He woke me up before it all happend. Im not staying at our home but i plan to go back at the end of the week and i have been in the house to clean etc. i just keep finding excuses to go out so i dont have to sit in doors i just want to be with people constantly is rhat normal? Is it normal to not cry all the time? I have never lost anyone before i havr both sets of grandparents still!! We thought we had all the time in the world

hi ellie crying is normal in our grief it's a release when you don't cry you mustn't feel guilty it doesn't mean you don't care any more the days will always be up and down one day you may feel able to enjoy living find a bit of happiness in the day and the next it feels like the end of the world you will have to expect this for a while and be kind to yourself and go with the emotions as they come
being with people who care and talking to everyone who is kind enough to listen is what will help get you through this

Shalom in Yeshua EllieF, thank you for telling us about Nathan and his heart attack. I must say he was awfully your to suffer that. Do you have any idea what the cause was? Was he in poor health running up to this?
Going out is a good thing for you. You don't need to make excuses for yourself. Do what you need to do. Sometimes just walking with a pram in front of you is quite therapeutic and allows you to think clearly. Do you go visiting or do you just end up in places?
Dont worry about crying either they will come probably when you least expect it, and there is no normal or abnormal here because we are all different human beings and we deal with things in a way that is right for us.
Keep talking to us.
May God bless you
