1. Places and Things That Are Familiar
Trying to go back to familiar places or to redo some of the same activities is heart wrenching. You never know which place or activity is going to trigger a memory and if it does, how poignant will it be?
2. 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.
3. Having an Everyday Conversation
Often I find myself apologizing for talking about my deceased daughter. I’m so conscious of the discomfort of others that I tend to say “I'm sorry” after I bring my personal heartache into a conversation.
4. The Pain of Silence
When Aine died we heard a new sound. Emptiness.
5. How to move your life forward, after death
learning to live again when you have nothing to live for
6. A Garden Dedication
The local community has showered us with ongoing support. Here's a story of how they continue to honor our daughter and her life.
7. 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.
8. Valentine's Day
Is Valentine's Day difficult for the grieving parent?
9. 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?
10. The Week of School Vacation is Wretched
It’s school vacation week again, a time of the school season I used to really love because I could just hang out with my daughters. But now I dread it.
