"Yeah i get the "if it was me i wouldn't be doing as good" ... really? how good do you think I'm doing? I can barely even get on this website because I read other peoples stories and it makes me cry. People can…"
"Yeah Easter was hard for me too. I couldn't even get on here. It was just too much. My husband was a great cook and I miss his cooking tremendously. He would have made something delicious. I broke down for a good 30-40…"
"Hey Simmons, I recently joined this site too. I moved back in with my parents mainly b/c I really needed that extra with my baby. I'm here for you. I'm really going to try to participate here and focus on helping others…"
Hi Momalone! Just wanted to say hello. I'm so sorry for having to be here with us. It is no fun, but it makes it better when you are around others that understand. I'm just passing the two month mark myself (I have a 6mo old boy and a 4yo girl), it does get harder - at least it has for me. The best advice I've received and continue to try to take is to just let the emotions come as they do, and when they do. It's hard with kids sometimes, because you can't control when or how they arrive, but be easy on yourself! I look forward to getting to know you better! Steph
My husband passed March 12th. We have a 14 month old and I am 30 weeks pregnant. Never in a million years did I see this in my future. Not only do we grieve for our own loss but we also grieve for the loss our children are going to experience and also the loss our spouses are experiencing. My husband adored our daughter and wanted nothing more than to watch her grow up. He dreamed of dancing with her on her wedding day! This life we have been given is so unfair. If you ever want to chat I am here. I find my strength from everyone here. I am so grateful for the connections I have made so far.
These milestones are tough, momalone, but you've found a place that will support you. I see you've joined some groups already - that's a great place to connect to those you have the most in common. Check out the forum discussions - there are some great conversations taking place there - and if you have a question that you want to ask, that's the place to do it. The chat room gets quite active at times and is a nice place to get better acquainted ... check it out sometime.
