Please don't think of yourself as a failure. We have all got challenges, yours have just been extra hard. You have been dealt a tough hand in life and it is only natural to feel badly.
Are you going to any counseling now? I hope so. You would really benefit from the prospective of a counselor at this point. I know that you probably feel that you have let your granddaughter down, but you have done the best you can. I hope that wherever she is right now, she is okay. Can you continue to see her and do things with her? I sure do hope so. You are a wonderful grandmother, don't ever forget that.
Do keep posting, know that we all care. If you feel like it, feel free to start your own thread.
I wanted to but in and welcome you to the forum too. I think I forgot to say that to Down. It seems that we are all going through a rough time right now. I wonder if the seasons are effecting us. The shorter days and gloomy weather. That is what I have had. I don't know about you all. But it is harder to get out and do things. Trapped inside it feels like.
I hope you all feel better soon. Keep on posting. We are here for support to you all.
