I have never written a blog before so forgive any mistakes I make with it, this is a true account of what has happened In the last few years of my life after my 16yr old son was charged with manslaughter. At the moment I feel strong enough to write but from the last time I wrote it has been a year. We are not the victims in the eyes of the law but I have struggled every day since this happened sometimes to just get up in the mornings.

I don’t know what exactly it is I intend to gain from writing this but I know when this happened to us there was no one to talk to and no one who could liken anything they had been through as a parent I hope one day that writing will help me with my own feelings of guilt and failure and that maybe someone stumbles across  this in a similar situation and wil not feel so alone as I did. My friends and some members of my family have been my rock and others have not.
