I am with my partner now for almost 18 months however 6 months before we started dating she lost her 17 year old in a motorcycle accident. She spent the first 3 months completely numbed and then threw herself into work to provide for her other 2 kids. We have since moved in together and have had great times but also have struggled. We went away on a vacation for 3 weeks and I think the downtime give her time to realise how much she misses her son, she told me she thought about suicide so she could be with him. I know that I have no chance of ever feeling how she feels but all I am asking for is advice from Mom's in similar situations as to what has helped them to cope, what have their partners been able to do to help, and what have you found worked for you, if anything, talking about it, therapy, anything that I can do to help her I will gladly do. I love her and I hate to see her like this and would do anything to help her and make it even just a little bit easier to get through every day
