New Patient Story

  • Location: Shelton,
In May of 2022, I found my daughter deceased in her apartment. She was only 24 years old, my best friend and my only daughter. Her death was very unexpected and the cause of death was determined natural causes. As a caregiver and a mother, i felt like I failed her and I was lost beyond words. I just wanted to see her smiling face and her beautiful eyes one more time. I wanted to be with her. At that point I wanted to end my life. I envisioned the whole scenario. But then I thought that it wouldn’t be fair to my two sons or my two granddaughters. They need me as well. In June of 2022, I sought out grief counseling and medication for my reactive depression and PTSD. As of September 2023, I continue with grief counseling and medication. It’s been 16 months since I lost my daughter and it feels like it was just yesterday. My sons are very supportive.
