Grief and guilt
January 5, 2018
At the end of the day, I know I didn't make Shelby take that fatal dose, but I still have feelings of guilt that plague me to no end. I often analyze my memories to see where I failed and how I could have done better. Oh how I wish I had a time machine!
There are many of us, a few friends of mine included, who are struggling with guilt and grief. This article really puts things in perspective. One thing to remember is that grief is a process, an erratic one at best, and you never stop grieving a child or any other close loved one. Eventually, hopefully, you get to a place where the grief is more manageable.
