My 9 year old grandson was in a head on collision this weekend. I had just begun this journey on the 18th and by the 20th i needed to be numb. I arrived at the hospital rushing out of work not saying anything to find out he was already in surgery. Hours that felt like days went by to be told his surgery went well, but he had little to no brain activity. I lost it, i tried my hardest to fight the urge and was unsuccessful. We had our precious Angel here with us until sunday afternoon. I used the first day this happened sober one day and after we said goodbye to him i didnt want to feel. Now im laying in bed unable to sleep from guilt and the saddness i have. I have to be able to hold it together to help my son and daughter in law through the worse time of their lives. My heart aches for my grandson as well as it wanting to take his parents pain away. I have to stay sober because i want to and they need me now to be. I love you mijo, always in Nanas heart

Update: thank you all for your support it means so much to me even though i dont know any of you personaly knowing others can be kind warms my heart. Today in another journey of grief anger has joined in the waves of saddness. However today we finally received good news. The bastard responsable for this tragedy has been currently charged with DUI and is awaiting further charges we know he is being guarded in the hospital and when released he will be taken into custody. We will see that justice is served for our precious angel. It gives me more ambition to stay straight and see this sobriety journey through. My heart will ache endlessly but you are all right, i need to remain strong and face this through because the pain i feel will never go anywhere unless i grieve as necessary. I cant stay numb to emotions i have to learn to handle them and express them aproprietly ( sorry cant spell) to anyone who took the time to read my little update i appreciate you and hope you are doing well on your journey. If i can have the worse pain in life of losing a grandchild and although nervous still and wiery of if i can continue this hurtful journey sober you can face your emotions, or trauma too. I believe in you all. Have a wonderful night
Your words, resignated in me all day today to stay strong thank you.
