Hi Deb & Moon, thank you for your beautiful words of support. I’m very grateful to have you both thinking of me. I am so sorry that it’s been so hard for you both. I understand how isolating and overwhelming every day is. It’s hard and harder. It’s been 99 days since I lost my girl, and my body and heart are still struggling to believe it. It feels like it can’t be real. An impossible situation that is impossible to explain. There is no improvement, no hope.. just existence and pain.. the constant stabbing, sharp pain. I originally came on these forums searching for hope that the pain would lessen, that life could be worth living again. But I don’t believe it now. I have spoken to lots of bereaved mothers who have lost their children and years on it’s as sharp and raw as it is now.
The longer the time stretches away from her, the less people are understanding of your loss. It’s the nature of the world, it’s going on, but I can’t.
