Mu daughter died 21 months ago while on vacation in Jamaica. She overdosed on drugs her boyfriend had bought. The worst part of this is that I'll never really know the circumstances of her death. All they could tell me was that she was found in the ocean. The death certificate took a year to get and I still haven't seen the toxicology report. Not that it matters anymore, it won't change anything.
I have a wonderful support system in friends and family but this is a very private grief. I don't think anyone can truly understand unless they have lost an adult child. The best thing I ever did for myself was to find a therapist to help me deal with the depression and grief. Does it get easier? I don't think so, it just gets different. I have to reinvent myself and come to terms with the loss of possibilities. My future is forever changed. I miss her so much.
