I have fought many years to stay alive from a disease that wanted to kill me so badly for the sake of my children. They are what kept me seeing that light at the end of that tunnel. Then the son of gun took one of my daughters. What kind of horrible irony is that for fate to play? I don’t understand this world or anything in it.

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..

I wish there were a button next to the ‘like’ button, which was a ‘hug’ button. Or a sit down with a cup of tea button. I know that probably sounds a bit trite but it was my instinctive reaction when I read this.
I don’t think there is any sense in this stuff. I don’t think we can understand the world. Depression is a pretty nasty monster who breaks into people’s homes uninvited, grabs someone and hurts them. There is nothing fair in any of it.
I’m sorry you’ve had to go through all this. I cannot imagine.
I can (again) only imagine the pain, the hurt, the emotional roller coaster you and your family must be experiencing. No magical words of wisdom to share with you. Just sending positive thoughts and energy your way.
Thank you so much. Your positive thoughts and energy are comforting. I’ve just been in the depths…..
Your words do not sound trite at all and I will accept that virtual cup of tea and hug. Thank you.
I pray everyday for you Rhonda. God loves you.
I don’t understand it either.
I really don’t understand anything and the older I get the less I understand. I thought it was supposed to be the other way around.
I feel the same way….nothing is as I expected it to be in this life. I am sending you a hug and saying a prayer for you. xo
