My son Jonathan passed away yesterday suddenly. He was sleeping on the sofa at his girlfriend's house and just stopped breathing. We don't know what happened though he was numb one side the day before but Accident and Emergency department sent him home saying it was a trapped nerve. He had also recently started antidepressants.
I am still in shock I think. though I did cry when I saw him. I can't sleep tonight but otherwise just feel really tired and numb. I am worried that i won't be able to cope, and that my CFS will become even more unmanageable. Recently I have been coming out of a bit of a relapse where I was pretty much bedbound for some time. I do have other issues inc. fibromyalgia, ibs, depression and a recent problem with my liver blood tests coming back high when they shouldn't be. I have another son, 24, who is devastated and I am worried about him as he takes everything so hard. He is very worried about me I know, that I won't come through this. I lost my husband when the boys were 4 and 5 and since then it has just been the three of us. I am so worried that when this hits me, I will not be able to cope. Has anyone any advice for me or any experience of dealing with something like this?
