Living my new normal

Tired of always having to be on the defensive...

  • What a jerk that person is!  I'm sorry they were unnecessarily mean.

    I think you are doing an amazing job with Team Popcorn.

    May sounds hectic. I hope, despite it's business, it goes smoothly for you. If not, we are here for venting purposes.

    Many hugs,


  • I am really sorry that someone (especially a family member) felt the need to say unkind things. I have finally gotten to a place with my grief that I can honestly just feel sorry for them. I feel sorry because they lack the compassion and respect for others that our children left us with. Anytime I see something or someone I can't help but wonder what they have been thru in their life that has brought them to that point. I always wonder maybe their baby died and no one was there to support them like they have been to support me because as crazy as I've been with support I can only imagine what I would have been like on my own. Not everyone has that level of compassion for others. I hope she learns to keep her thoughts and opinions not only to her self but off of social media. If I would have seen it I probably would have very politely and kindly responded. :)



  • Wow .. so sorry for the insensitivity. I understand it firsthand ... my uncle (my dad's brother) told his other brother when he received a fundraising letter from us our first year that "he only gives to causes he believes in." I was on fire. This was the same man whose daughter experienced six miscarriages, then went on to have to successful pregnancies (outside of gestational diabetes she experienced). How did she get to FT? Yeah -- the march of dimes. And whose religion is against the MOD? If they can't be nice, then they don't need to say anything at all.

    Sorry that things are so hectic. I understand what it's like with a spouse who travels .. mine is gone practically 8 months out of every year. Take a deep breath ... and don't beat yourself up if you can't do it all perfectly.

    hugs and love.
