I just lost my son. he was 3years old. he went in for routine surgery and died 3 days later on June 9th due to unforseen complications. I have a daughter who will be 2 in July. she thinks my son is at school. It was the only time they were apart. I feel like I am on autopilot. I go through the motions and try to keep things normal for her. My husband is angry. I am trying to find support for us. People are worried about me because they haven't seen me break. I think I cried so much that I just can't. I don't want people to worry about me. I have good cries alone and for now that works for me. I can't sleep and when I do, I keep waking up or have these terrible nightmares. I don't feel like moving but I know I have to be there for my little girl. How do you cope with something so unexpected that it still doesn't feel real? Is this normal?
