Default HELP PLEASE

December 23rd 2013 my world fell apart. My oldest son passed away. Only 21. He went in for open heart surgery. Was in icu for four days. They released him straight from icu to go home after only those four days. Did not have insurance so couldn't get medicine he was supposed to have and they knew that. So many things were wrong, but the one in a million things that makes me so angry is they put on his death certificate it was natural causes. Huh what 21 year old dies of natural causes? Then on top of that my marriage is in trouble so I am a wreck. Well the last day of this month is my birthday and then 9 days after that would have been his birthday. I know that day is gonna destroy me. I wanna make cards that day but all my stuff is everywheres so I can't work on them. What I would like to find is some kits maybe that has everything including instructions that I can have everything I need and can just sit there and make a bunch. I only know where my cutter, scissors and tape roller and double sided tape are. I have no extra money right now just to order paper pumpkins kits cause I have an out of town dr. Visit I have to do next week so that option is out. So some thoughts and prayers would be wonderful. I have no friends or family that I will be able to be with on that day but my husband and that ain't gonna be good cause of our problems. Thank you in advance for prayers.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to you. Losing a child is beyond heartbreaking and truly pray that God will keep you surrounded by His loving grace and comfort.

You would benefit greatly from a support system. Do you have a local church. They can be of tremendous support. Physically and emotionally. I'm still praying...

Default Support system

Sadly muscrat I don't have a support system locally. I have to live someplace that I have pretty much no one that can be that. Only people I consider friend where I live are the ones I go to a Stampin up group. My husband is not a good support because it makes him mad when I cry. He doesn't handle crying or any kind of tragedy very well. His whole family is like that. I really don't go to a church in particular anymore. I am just trying to make friends who make cards to talk to and discuss card making. That seems to be my big stress reliever. At least I don't feel all alone even when I am all alone. Thank you for writing back.

Card friends are a great group! Sorry your husband isn't supportive, but he may be grieving in his own way. Men and women are so different. I'll continue to pray.
