1. Wailing - A Physical Response to Grief
I never quite knew why women would wail after a death of a loved one. Itís a cultural difference and/or a religious difference, I always thought. But now I understand. It's a physical response to grief.
2. Masking Our Grief
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.
3. Being in Public after Your Child Dies
Going back into the public domain can feel terrifying after your child dies. Will I bump into someone I know? Will a stranger know how sad I am? Will I burst into tears? These are some of the questions you'll ask yourself before you venture out again.
4. If I Were A Pilot, I'd Ground Myself
Over the last 17 months, there is no way I could have performed any task that required any extensive level of thought. My thinking process is skewed, my thoughts are random and unfocused.
5. Let Us Help One Another
What I have seen and heard and felt over these past two years reinforces my belief in the human spirit and its power.
6. Losing A Child
I feel like I did at the beginning...lost, angry, sad beyond belief. This is an article I wrote back then that resonates to me loudly today.
7. A Bereaved Parent at Christmastime
The sights and smells and sounds of the holidays are constant interruptions, annoyances and reminders of times past; we wish this holiday stuff would just go away.
8. How to move your life forward, after death
learning to live again when you have nothing to live for
9. A New Christmas
Learning to live with Christmas again...
10. Message In a Bathroom
Proof of life after death
