death in my family

maryjo24November 25, 2006

Hi gals, I'm going thru all the perimenopause crap right with you all. To make things almost unbearable my son (age 25) died on 11/16/06 in a car accident. So now I not only have hair growing in weird places on my body, mood swings, I'm tired all the time, I look old, hot flashes, my body aches....and now my heart is broken. I'd go thru all the crazy stuff of menopause & not utter a word, just to have my son back even for 1 day. I think my new take on life is, all the things I thought were big deals really aren't. They really aren't! Hug your family today for me, will you gals?

Oh maryjo..........I don't know what to say. I can't imagine the hell you are going through. I think that's something that all parents fear as the worst thing that could ever happen.
I'm just speechless. I can't imagine the agony and loss.

It really does put everything in perspective, doesn't it? Perimenopausal symptoms mean absolutely nothing, in comparison.
I wish there were some way I could comfort you. I'm just so very sorry for your loss. Try to hold on to the love of those around you. And somehow believe that you will see him again. Talk to him now. He's probably right there with you.
My 17 year old son just walked in, and I hugged him soooo hard. I will remember what you've said Maryjo, and keep everything in perspective.
I will be thinking of you Maryjo, and sending comforting thoughts and hugs your way for a very long time.
