i want to start off by saying i have made so many wonderful friends here and i have gotten through many hard times with your help. i never asked a certain question because i assumed everyone here felt the same way, grieving is just that, grieving. no matter what. now i just read a topic that hurt me and to be honest made me a little angry. this person is dealing with the loss of a loved one as are we all, her mother in law also is in pain over the loss of her son. her insinuation is that their "pain" is not even comparible because her mom died recently from diabetes and her mother in laws loss of her son was over 5 years ago and was an "drug related" this really offended me . is there anyone else who seems to feel that thier loss is more significant than any one elses because of the manner or age etc.? i make no more sense out of a childs death than i do a tragic death or even a death due to a well lived and aged life.
