Here is another. So much of what she says resonates so clearly with me. Her keen observations and eloquence speak to many of the things I have written about this year. Thank you, Dee.
My heart is broken. So is my life. There is no instruction manual on how to survive the loss of a child. I have listened to many books on the subject and downloaded many more onto my kindle and there are no answers and no one knows the way. Yes, it helps to be understood by other grieving parents and their friendship helps me to feel less targeted and less like an alien. But while we offer understanding and support to these former perfect strangers who have become fast friends, we are all desperately fighting to survive and still question whether it’s possible.
Friends and family want to see us return to normal, but our normal included living in a world with our child. We are forever changed and while I would like nothing more than to reassure everyone who cares about me that someday I will be okay again…
