How do we cope with turning off life support for a loved one? There is no easy answer. Some turn to other family members for support, through talking, crying and sharing emotions we can learn to cope with our loss. I believe most find comfort in God. Prayer is huge healing tool.
Though I have been lucky enough to have not experienced this at all, I believe prayer and the comfort of loved ones surrounding me would make all the difference in my healing process. Time of course is the ultimate healer, but with God, Family and friends, how can you go wrong?
I am by no means any sort of doctor, but if you are dealing with life support issues of a loved one, then pray to God for help to carry you through these hard times and surround yourself with family and friends. Do not elect to be by yourself and think that you can handle this alone. It's a huge burden, which should be shared with all your relatives. Being alone, will only make you think of the pain 24 hours a day. You need a relief valve to vent your grief and by talking about it with relatives and God, you can relieve this burden which will consume you otherwise.
