Members lisw50 Posted January 22, 2011 Members Report Share Posted January 22, 2011 My son James died on Dec 23, 2010. His services were held one week ago today. I am pretty unstable at this point not knowing when I can talk or think or breathe without the overwhelming pain rushing throughout me. I can not believe this has happened. How does a young man do a days work, pick up his dry clenaing, buy his groceries, cook his supper, go to sleep and never wake up? There are no answers other than I know he had severe sleep apnea. It will take another month before we get the result of the autopsy. My son was 36 years old, single, and lived alone. His co-workers broke into his apartment when he did not come to work and the lights were on in his apartment and car snowed in. The Police had our phone number and did not call us for 6 days because they went on their Christmas holiday. My husband and I live near Yokohama, Japan. We kept wondering why James did not IM or call us, but after all he was 36 and had an active group of friends. I am fortunate to work for the US Navy and they trully have been wonderful to us, but I will have to head back to Japan next week. I just do not know how I will be able to get back on that plane and get on with life. How does this all work? Getting on with your life? Yesterday, we stopped at the military base to get groceries and I flipped out in the store becasue of the memories of shopping with my son when he was a child. How do I leave these memories? I know that I have to get on with life, work, and dealing with the pain, but it hurts so bad. Leona Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
