I sounds like it was beautiful. I was just thinking that it would be nice to be able to release butterflies next year on my daughters birthday/anniversary. You're still in my prayers.

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

I am so sorry u have to deal with this. Having family around will help alot. Remember that it is ok to cry and let it out. Celebrate his life at the same time as u r grieving his death. It can be therapeutic to due this. When family comes on Monday have a celebration of his life--happy pics of family get togethers and talk about the good times. You will break and cry but thats ok you just keep remembering the good things. Do u know the song"Heaven Must Have Needed A Hero" it is beautiful and that is the way I choose to remember my lost loved one. Ok I just wanted to say that it is ok to cry, its normal, each time it's never ok that they have been taken but it gets easier to live as time passes. I will remember u in my prayers on Monday and send u strenth from within.

I'm so glad to hear you have an appt. set up, and that you will be spending Monday with family and friends so you will not be alone.
Good for you, and just take good care of yourself.

I agree with what everyone has said; professional help is so important, to have a 'live' outlet for venting your emotions.
One of my younger brothers died at 17 of a drug overdose, so I can understand the horror of how that feels. Anniversaries, and birthdays, will be tough for a number of years, maybe not as severely as for the first year, which is the very worst.
In addition to professional help, you could try journalling as well, and if you feel like crying, do so!

Anniversary times are difficult. Since monday is an "anniversary" day because it was your sons birthday, it may be much harder than you can even imagine right now. Please get professional help-it may be hard to "will" your way through this.

Look the suicide hotline number for your area. Even if you are just down they can help you sort through your thoughts.

I agree with yogabiker, if you are not seeing someone right now, please do it as soon as possible and the ER is where you need to go if you cannot get in to another doctor now

First I must say, if you are not getting professional help, PLEASE get help. Depression is a disease of the brain that prevents us from seeing things as they really are. I am personally surrounded by loving family and friends, but in the depths of my issues, I often cannot see it. Your trauma of this past March is horrible; there is no other word for it. I know the internet is a convenient forum to say things that you might not normally say, but PLEASE talk to someone. If there is no one go to the emergency room. Now that you have reached out, I feel somewhat responsible for helping you. You are not alone.

I'm not sure if you are seeing a therapist but if you are you might want to make an appointment before monday or on monday. It's only natural for you to be devistated on such a day. Just do whatever you can to release your emotions in a healthy emotional way. If you need any support we are here.

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

I have dealt with mild depression all my life. This past March I lost my 19 year old son to a drug overdose. The past 6 months have been pure hell for me. My son's birthday is Monday and I feel like I am drowning in despair. I am still working out everyday in hopes that it will help with some of the depression but it's not really helping that much. Help...I don't know what to do.
