Members Kelly Lutgen Posted May 24, 2012 Members Report Share Posted May 24, 2012 I have a 27 year old developmentally delayed son. He suffered a brain injury at age 2 and has been left with severe epilepsy along with a host of other problems. He just suffered a broken neck. He is rapdily slipping away due to all of his medical problems and I will lose him soon. He is the light of my life. I do have other children but I'm afraid to live in a world where he doesn't exist. Other people don't understand how bad this hurts. A lot of people tell me he would be better off. Other people tell me to let him go as if I have some control over when he dies. I even had a co-worker tell me that she felt sorry for him, but not for me and to make sure that I let him go. They act like I'm keeping him here. I am so torn because he is suffering, and sometimes I think it would be better for him if he passed over. But then the panic and piercing pain of losing him overcomes me and I get scared. I can't think of anything else and my home life, social like and work are being greatly affected. I know even some of my closest friends are getting weary for the end to come. I'm confused and scared. Help! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
