136. My son premonitioned (word?) that he would die when he turned 23--
thankfully 23 years came and went over ten years ago. And he's the most joy-filled person I know. Not a doom and gloom kind of kid at all. I empathise with you as it is scary when your child is so sure, but I'm trying to reassure you that they aren't always right about their demise. It does sound like your son might be depressed, though. And I recognize that from personal experience. That hopeless feeling about the future sounds serious to me. Therapy might be something to consider. There's no way to know if therapy would have ameliorated my battles with depression but I'd give anything to have had the opportunity to find out.
I don't pray but I do hope you find strength to weather this out with your son. And that his life will someday bubble with hope and dreams.
