I lost my son 6 months ago from an accidental overdose. I am having trouble when it comes to going to church. I am angry but not sure how to move on from that. Is there someone who can relate to this that could give me some advice? I am at a wall right now. Thank you

Hi there i am so sorry for you. Whilst my circumstances are different is some ways they are the same my child at 18 months was killed by a dresser accident almost 10 years ago. I do have other children but that hole in my heart will always be there somehow all i Have been trying to do is to live around it. I too was angry sad and felt guilty how i could've had a dresser in his room if i knew he was a climber...

But for the sake of my husband and my other children I decided I can't be bitter i must live in every sense of the word. What helped me most was when i volunteered my life had purpose and i know one day i will be reunited with my precious baby but till them i have lots of work to do down here on earth.

My heart bleeds with yours. I do not understand G-d either.

Who are you angry at? God? God did not make your child abuse drugs. Your child made that choice with the help of Satan.

Your son? Well, you have every right to be angry, but what is it doing for you? Nothing.

Go to your pastor, seek counseling to help you learn how to cope with your son's death. Nothing will fix the hole, but your pastor can help you move forward.

My condolences for the loss of your son.
