Here are the top ten articles for the Child Loss Site! These rankings are live and get reset at the beginning of each month, so check back often to see what your fellow visitors are most interested in!
1. Our Grief Forever Remains
In the early days after your child dies, it can be quite clear to the outside world what stage of grief you are in - shock, anger, etc. But as times passes, they see us functioning again, maybe even having a laugh. Do they think we're "over it"? We learn to hide our grief behind a mask.
2. Self-Pity versus Self-Compassion
As a bereaved parent, I must remain diligent in paying attention to my feelings so as not to fall into the trap of self-pity while remembering to care for myself emotionally. We walk a thin line.
3. How Long Does It Take to Grieve?
How many times do we have to get up, put one foot in front of the other and get on with it? When does the grief process end?
4. The Necessity of Shock
We’ve been living under a cloak of shock. The cloak is velvety and soft, almost comforting, but very heavy and burdensome and at times feels like it might cover me up. Still, under it is a better place than being without it altogether.
5. Back to School After a Sibling Dies
How on earth do I get my living child (children) back to school after their sibling has died? Ideas to help you prepare for getting your loved one(s) back to school after their brother or sister has died.
6. To Go or Not Go, That is the Dilemma
For anyone who’s lost a child, it is nearly impossible to fathom that life moves forward. It’s not plausible that daily routines and events can continue on without our son or daughter. But the world does move forward; it does continue on and inevitably we are faced with moving with it.
How time feels like it moves so slowly and yet is gone so quickly.
8. No Day is Different
Whether it's been a week, a month, or a year, no day is different than the next. They are all grueling.
9. Sometimes I Don't Know What to Write
Last week, I caved. I compromised my goals in order to keep my sanity. This week I can write about it.
10. The Meaning of Regret
We all have experiences in our lives that have caused us to feel regret. Since our daughter died, the feeling of regret will haunt us forever.
