Here I am four years into this journey and I still have days when I think I have utterly lost my mind.
Not because of internal cues but because of external pressure by family and friends to conform to some idea THEY have of what grief after child loss should look like.
I have to remind myself that they have NO IDEA what this is like and that if I am managing to move along-even at a snail’s pace-I’m just fine.
I wrote this a couple years ago in response to a private message sent to me by a friend:
“It was just over a year after Dominic’s accident and a friend forwarded an article about odd behaviors of those who were “stuck’ in grief. Along with the forward was a little tag, “Reminds me of you.”
It hurt my feelings.
And it was inappropriate.”
