I went through a similar situation. I'm about the same age as you, and my (ex) best friend really hates me now, and the worst part is, it's all my fault. It really hurts and I'm sorry you're having to go through this.

I lost my son Justin who was 25, on September 14, 2019. His truck rolled over on the freeway and he was killed instantly. There are no words and nothing that anyone can do to make this easier to cope with. I have to take this one day at a time. Some days have been more bearable than others but my life will never be the same. My son was a patient, kind-hearted adult, and everyone that knew him thought the same of him. I miss him so much and I can't wait until I see him again.
My son was very sick when he was a toddler. He slept in the hospital for days upon days, which turned into weeks upon weeks. I read to him every day from a book of A.A. Milne poems. This was by far my favorite. I still have it nearly memorized 24 years later.
This was positively delightful! I'm quite sure this sums up just about anyone who has ever tried to exercise, only to be utterly fed up with it in no time. This definitely got me laughing, and I'll know what poem to read the next time I need a little laugh after miserably failing at trying to stick with my workout plan. A wonderfully fun poem indeed!
This is a really good poem. I, too, pretend to be okay when all I feel is an unending emptiness. It's like feeling everything all at once and then suddenly feeling nothing at all.
I really love this boy. He sits right across from me, and I so relate to this. I was passing notes to my best friend, and he was watching, and then my best friend said, "He's weird and is a nerd," and then she looked at him. Now he thinks I have no interest in him.
This poem truly means a lot to me. A daughter's life is nothing without her dad's love. Love you, dad, my superhero.
This hits close to home for me. My mom hasn't really been the greatest person and by far isn't the person I look up to. I have had the thought run through my mind once or twice, but I've never actually done it.
It's good to know that men are also affected by abortions just like women are. I know your child is strong and beautiful and looking after you in heaven. I pray you'll get to meet them in heaven, and I hope you won't put the blame on you because you did everything you possibly could...
That really hit home to me because one of my best friends had attempted suicide and it crushed me. She couldn't handle the split family she was living in. I related to her story and her past. I, too, have attempted suicide because I felt all alone. It crushed me when it didn't work. Nobody ever knew. Nobody really cares now, but I have impacted a lot of people in my life, whether it was good or bad. This poem opened my eyes to help me see that the people I have impacted would have been crushed if they had known I had done that.
