Last year in the middle of the COVID-19 epidemic my son passed away. He was 29 but stilled lived at home as he had mild autism. He went out to celebrate his birthday and never returned. We will never know exactly what happened that night but the coroners report had recorded that vomit was found in his airways. It was a great shock to us and our minds started racing and wanted to blame someone for his death. It’s now been nine months and our grief is just like it happened yesterday. The pain in the chest and the knots in the stomach can be unbearable. We miss him so much, we cannot believe he has gone. He was such a loving and caring person, not to just his family but to anyone he met. It is very hard for me to deal with it, my life has to go on as usual. I work casually, I look after my husband who is home from a workplace injury, my daughter suffers from anxiety, one of my sons broke up with his girlfriend and now has returned home and my other son came home to live when his brother passed and is a drug user and we are going through issues with him. I feel I cannot cope anymore, and if it wasn’t for my daughter needing me, I would probably end my life. My husband is driving me insane, he is on strong pain killers and it makes him useless so he relies on me to do everything. He gets very abusive verbally and it upsets me a lot. I just don’t know what to do.
