Recently I was made painfully aware that not everyone understands the loss of a child. Some can't even begin to understand why we carried Gabriel to term, and believe he should have been aborted when we received our fatal diagnosis at twenty weeks. So, for the majority of you out there who do understand, or can at least empathize with us - please take a moment and make a comment on this blog. It would help me make a point to those who are casting such a negative light on this aspect of my life.
Here are some of the highlights of what I was told:
Other people (who are grieving) handle this better, without upsetting their families. I need to get over it and I sound crazy. I upset everyone around me, and need to be considerate of them. My support group isn't good for my mental health. I shouldn't be thinking about/remembering him every month, every year until I die. "He wasn't a real person."
If this has upset you, or you just don't agree with it, PLEASE make a comment on this post. This blog is visited anywhere from 30 to 300 times per day each month. So many of you remain anonymous, yet are consistant with your visits. Please take a moment and comment. Thanks!
