I recently lost my son to Covid. He was only 23 and had his whole life ahead of him. I’m struggling with this anger I have towards him because I kept telling him to stay at home and to stop visiting clubs and partying with his friends.

Now I feel as if I’m paying the ultimate price for his frivolity. I don’t understand why he wouldn’t take the warnings from the authorities and health experts seriously.

Now he’s gone and not only am I grieving, I’m also feeling intense anger. How can I deal with this emotion?
