Online. Don't get me wrong, my family and friends are really fantastic at providing support, but unless you have lost a child yourself it's hard to really understand, so online support is really critical.
I agree with both of you. I prefer online support because I get too emotional and because nobody understands what it is like. Also, it seems like very few people are actually interested in listening to me. I want to talk about my children and what it is like to lose them, but I think most people aren't comfortable with the subject matter.
I think often IRL people are worried about upsetting you and don't realise that sometimes you need to talk. When you're online and coming to a loss board you know that you're around people who understand and who need to talk too x
