Living my new normal

lots of triggers lately

  • I am really sorry that you are having such a difficult time. The holidays can certainly be a very stressful and agonizing time for those of us who have lost a child. There are just so many things we should be doing with our children and we aren't. It's a very hard reality that we can't ignore during the holidays. Plus after a certain amount of time our family and friends expect us  to return to "normal" this can add some additional stress. I am glad that you are able to get your baby fix when needed, even though it is bittersweet. Sending you lots of hugs.


  • This grief comes in waves...sometimes those waves come fast and furious, and it can be hard to find your footing.  I hope that you're able to find a little peace amidst the pain.  I know that the holidays are an especially difficult time.

    I'm glad that you are able to enjoy your friend's daughter...though I know it must be somewhat painful, it sounds like you really do enjoy being around her.

    Hugs to you as you navigate the holidays without your sweet Scott,
