Good night, sweet prince: And flights of angels sing thee to thy rest...
-William Shakespeare


It has been said, 'time heals all wounds.' I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.
-Rose Kennedy

Things

Some things depress me more than others.
The "friend" who said "You need to take down your memorial upstairs." " or at least put a time limit on it." Pisses me off and depresses me. It weighs heavy on my heart that I considered this person a "friend."
The people who don't know and ask, "Did you have your baby?" Depress me, yes, I had him, no he is no longer with us!
The people who reach out to touch your tummy. Pisses me off and depresses me! Since when has it ever been alright to touch someone you're not related to?
I'm sure we can all come up with things and I'm sure my list will grow over time but if you would like to add to it you may! Enjoy sending me what pisses you off or depresses you!

Okay, whoever tells you to take down a memorial SUCKS and should be banned from your life forever.

Certain songs are really tough for me... so I avoid them...

I'm so sorry to read about your beautiful William.
Thank you for your email, there are so many women out here who can help you to just get through the days.
Ignore your friend. Do what your heart tells you. Always. No one has a right to tell you how or how not to grieve. As long as your grief isn't destructive do what you need to do.
I have J@cobs picture in my room along with his hand and foot prints and his ashes. I have fresh flowers with his picture always and candles I have bought for him.
I have a charm bracelet with his birthstone and initial and a ring with all our names on it.
Some people may think this is unhealthy but he is my son and he is just as much part of my life as if I had him in my arms now.
Friends like that are not the ones you need in your life right now.

Heavily women have again become hard for me to see. I lost J in labour, I can't help looking at them and thinking you have everything to look forward to. You're almost there and I just know they will probably have their baby.
