Thank you so much for your kind words. He died Thursday night and my other son and wife and myself spent the weekend with his wife and two daughters. I held in my tears because of my young granddaughters. I couldn't cry until I was back home on Sunday and was in the arms of my sister my only sibling as both my parents are deceased. I grieve for all those who have lost loved ones because I know their pain is as deep as mine. Thank you again.
Thank you for your post. I can see that you have done everything to help yourself and I agree with you that in some instances there just is no answer regardless of all the help you get. There is a history of depression in my family beginning with my paternal grandmother and continuing down to my son. His father died about 2 years ago and he was heartbroken. His father lived with him and his wife for several years and then he was diagnosed with lung cancer and my son was there with him through his illness and was with him when he died. His father was his closest friend and they did everything together. I think that was the beginning of his downward spiral. There were changes at work and financial worries, and then, too, his 16 year-old-daughter was rebelling and was giving her parents so many problems. He had always been able to deal with the depression with medication, but when the anxiety attacks started he thought he was having a heart attack and he was afraid to even go out of the house. I know that he loved me and his family very much and we tried to help him in every way, but he felt he was never going to get better and he wanted the pain to end. I know I did the best I could but there are days that are so hard to bear. I lost my mother in March and then my son in May, so my grief is two-fold. I am not a religious person but I do feel there is something beyond this life and somehow we will be together again and that helps. Again thanks for your post and I am so thankful you took the time to describe your struggle. Best of luck to you.
