Heartbroke­n over losses


Dear June

I LOST my husband 10 years ago on April 16, 2006.

My mum passed on October 22, 2011 and then I lost my son on April 21 this year. My heart is breaking. Can you tell me if my family are all right?

Will I always feel this pain or will life get any easier? Catherine, via email.

You have most certainly been through an emotional wringer over these last few years and it will take quite some time for you to feel you are on the road to recovery, but I promise that you are, even though it might not feel like it at the moment.

The emotional pain you are experienci­ng can be very debilitati­ng but all you can do is try to get through each day.

When we suffer the loss of a loved one, it brings back memories of those we had previously lost and we then seem to grieve for them all over again.

I am aware of two males drawing close.

The older male was very set in his ways and could be quite stubborn at times.

I also sense he would not have been a believer in the afterlife when he was here.

The younger male held a special bond with you and could be quite loving and protective of you, but was also of strong character with a stubborn streak.

I sense them to be father and son.

There are many other family members with them but I am mostly aware of them as they have been pushed to the front in an effort to let you know they love you and are together.
