Sometimes I feel unstoppable and I'm very productive, but today I'm missing you way too much. Can't stop thinking about your beautiful silky black hair, the way you called me "Hunny", how soft your voice was. My grief is stronger today than usually. Today I saw someone who looked exactly like you and for a brief moment I let myself forget about your death. Now I'm weeping in my room, looking at your pictures, trying to remember every detail of your beautiful face. Your little scar below left eyebrow, a heart-shaped birthmark on your cheek. I miss you. I'm drowning in my grief. I wish you were here. I love you, mom. I need you.

These holiday weekends are so incredibly hard. 
Your person is gone. Everyone is celebrating (and you don't have your person with whom to spend the 3-day weekend). •
•
There may be invitations from people who don't want to leave you out, but it's so damn hard being at parties and gatherings. •
•
And then there are the inevitable, seemingly harmless, questions from coworkers, friends, or simply customer service workers - inquiring about your plans for the long weekend. Pain upon pain.
•
•
For all of you working your way through this holiday weekend - we see you. We're all here in this together, holding onto each other, holding each other up. •

I read a post about #loss I really liked recently it said the #sadness that wells up inside of you when you think of a person you have lost is just all the love you still have for them trying to find its place. The hardest part is always having to miss you.  #griefquotes #itsokaytonotbeokay #missyou

It feels like last month that he asked me over for a cookout. It feels like a lifetime since I’ve heard his voice. It feels like yesterday that I sat across from him and told him he needed to see the doctor for a work up because I thought it was cancer. ⁣
⁣
Every day there is a moment where I re-live some memory with my dad. I see him in my siblings. In Michaels laugh. In Kimberleighs “nah-uh”, in Levi’s shy grin...I see him in any holiday. I see him in almost every male patient I have. I see him at every bonfire. At every shot of tequila or any brave soul who drinks Natty Light. Every time I have steak and a baked potato. Every football game, every springs trip, every drive north on 75, every bag of boiled peanuts, every salted watermelon, every bottled coke, every FSU hat or shirt, every plane I see. He’s everywhere. ⁣
⁣
I miss him more than my words can express. And I hate that he’s not here seeing how great everyone is doing. I know he’s proud and he’s with us in a different way. I hardly ever use to see cardinals. And since he’s gone I see at least one every day. I like to think it’s him dropping in as a “I love you”. Three years today since you left this earth. ⁣
⁣
“What can we do other than try to remind one another that some things can't be fixed, and not all wounds are meant to heal? We need each other to remember, to help each other remember, that grief is this multitasking emotion. That you can and will be sad, and happy; you'll be grieving, and able to love in the same year or week, the same breath. We need to remember that a grieving person is going to laugh again and smile again. If they're lucky, they'll even find love again. But yes, absolutely, they're going to move forward. But that doesn't mean that they've moved on. “💕⁣ .

There is this myth that 80-90% of relationships break up after the loss of a child. As with many myths, if not all, it’s unhelpful and it unnecessarily puts stress onto a relationship already under extrem emotional pressure. •
It’s not proven but often stated by health professionals therefore seemingly factual. A research on the topic has been made by the Compassionate Friends in 2006 where they found that only 10-15% of relationships spilt following a loss. Less than the average 50% of marriages who divorce. •
Another study from 2010 showed an increased number of couples spilt up after a loss, but they also specifically said that it's unclear whether the separations were directly related to the loss, however. Relationship problems, parental depression, and other factors may be responsible for the pregnancy loss and the end of the relationship.
•
Your relationship is affected by many things, most of all by HOW you BOTH deal with the loss, pain and grief. 
You might like to read more about the topic in the book: Grieving Parent: Surviving Loss as a Couple

If only I could shout this from the rooftops...especially the line: you will be whole again but never the same.

And I would add: THAT IS OK.

If you know a child or teen who lost a parent...don’t try to “get them back to who they were” what a waste! Help them grow into the best person they can be using the circumstances they are now in.

More real life examples in stories later ....plus coping skills

Trauma impacts us in so many ways. We can come to have PTSD from a variety of situations. Loss. Abuse. Assault. War. Mental abuse. Physical abuse. Disaster. The common thing most survivors share is the grief. We grieve over losing something: innocence, security, understanding, a person. This is why we must come together both in places like this page or in our own communities to form relationships that can build bridges to understanding, and pave a road to healing.  #strongerthanyouthink #strength #ptsdawareness #ptsdsucks #ptsd #mentalhealth #mentalillness #motivationalquotes #griefquotes #grieving #grievingprocess #anxiety #depression #overwhelmed #lifehappens #mentalhealthquotes #hurting #stagesofgrief #flourish #flourishing #thriving #community #friends #buildingbridges #foundation

I have been open about their Uncle’s death from the beginning, how could I not be, there’s no way I could hide it. 
My eldest is very protective of me, if there’s mention of death on the tv (and bloody hell, it’s mentioned every 2 minutes isn’t it?) he will rub my back and ask me if I’m ok. On more than one occasion, he’s had to take over tasks from me as the wave of tears has become too much. If I’m reading to his little brother he’ll tell me “I’ll do it mummy” and he’ll take over the story and sit there holding my hand until the tears fade. He’s 9 now, but he has the heart of a giant and he makes me so proud.
My baby boy, who’s now 5, has no qualms about talking about his Uncle. I heard him telling our dog the other day that their Uncle had died, that mummy’s brother was dead, that it was very sad but that we would all be ok. He tells random strangers that mummy’s necklace holds the ashes of her brother who died and tells me that Uncle Matthew lives on in all of us. He melts my heart.

I wanted and still want to be as open with them as I can because I want them to understand that death happens and it’s ok for that loss to take its toll on you. It’s ok not to be ok. I want to show them that it’s ok to be open and honest, to cry, to be silent, to laugh and to talk about him because I want them to be more prepared than I was for this dreadful horror of death that we will all have to deal with at one time or another.

It breaks my heart that they won’t get to spend any more time with their Uncle who loved them so much and got so much joy from watching them grow but even though it’s not the influence I would ever choose, Matthew will have an everlasting effect on them due to his passing, his absence will teach them resilience, strength and how to deal with loss, which is the hardest lesson of all. So I guess in that way, my baby boy is right, Matthew really is in all of us forever more💙

You’re like a troll on Twitter...⠀
Just because you’re upset, everyone has to be upset. ⠀

-After Life⠀
✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨⠀
I know anger is listed as one of the “stages of grief” and although I’ve learned grief isn’t that simple... it’s not just stages... I definitely felt my fair share of anger.⠀
⠀
I really loved the #Netflix series After Life by @RickyGervais ⠀
⠀
Has anybody else seemed to notice grief represented more and more in culture? Maybe it’s becoming a little less taboo.⠀
⠀
Or maybe I’m just seeing it more since you know... now I live grief on the daily.⠀
⠀
Okay rambling yet again.⠀

When you lose someone that you love, whether that be the child you longed to raise, the partner you wanted to grow old with, a sibling, a grandparent, a friend - your world is turned upside down. The love you felt (and feel), walks alongside the grief and heartache you are trying to process, and just like you can’t switch off the love, you can’t switch off the grief. If your heart is breaking today I encourage you to try not to look beyond this next 24 hours, take it a day at a time and if that is too much, take it an hour at a time. ♥️ .

I have endless questions about my new book ‘The Baby Loss Guide’ and I try to answer lots of them in my Insta stories, so please always check there if you ask me something. But I thought it may help to answer the top 6 here... 1) is this book for all types of baby loss? Yes it is, whether early loss, loss in pregnancy, at birth, neonatal, or up to four years of age. 2) Is it suitable for people who have lost a baby recently or 20 years ago? Yes! I write for anyone who has lost whether it be 70 years ago or today. 3) Is the book for men and women? Yes it is, and it has stories from both genders too. 4) Do you cover in the book how you re-found your joy? Yes I do as people are always asking me about this. 5) Is The Baby Loss Guide suitable for friends and family or those working with the bereaved? Yes! I specifically wrote this book with that in mind. I wanted it to educate and teach people about loss and how best to support. 6) Is their an audio book? Yes and I read it, so you will hear me in your ears (hopefully you will think that’s a good thing 🤪) - The link to the book is in my profile and it’s available from all good book stores. #thebabylossguide .

LUPUS AWARENESS MONTH 💜 Day Twenty Six⁣
⁣
Permission to grieve... ⁣
⁣
When we think about grief often our first thought is someone mourning the passing of a loved one. We have all experienced grief in our life in some shape or form. ⁣
Grief is extremely painful and involves many different emotions; sadness, anger, shock etc. We all grieve in different ways. ⁣
We all cope differently. ⁣
⁣
When you live with a chronic illness you experience grief. People grieve for their old lives; for missed opportunities; for a body that now functions differently. There are many powerful emotions associated when living in an ever changing unpredictable body. ⁣
⁣
Grief is always there in some shape or form. Some days it is barely noticeable, other days it sits heavily on your heart. Some days you may simply feel frustrated because you had to cancel plans to catch up with a friend, other days you will feel extremely sad because all you were able to do was make it from bed to the couch. ⁣
⁣
We often don’t talk about this emotional pain as when we do, we are met with comments like ‘it could be worse’ ‘oh you will be okay’ ‘just think happy thoughts’ ‘you’ve been through this before and you were fine’. ⁣
As humans we like it when people tell us they are feeling good but we often don’t know how to be with a person who is in pain. ⁣
Sometimes the best thing you can say is ‘that sounds really hard’. ⁣
⁣
I would hide my grief with a smile. I would bottle it up and not talk about it but this in turn further fed the pain I was forced to carry. ⁣
⁣
I am now learning that I can be happy but still sad; I can be grateful and angry; confident but anxious. Grief is not linear and neither are your emotions. ⁣
⁣
Please give yourself permission to feel this grief...but also at the same time if it feels too much please reach out for help. ⁣
You do not have to carry this pain alone 💖

Hey hon,
Today I was quite lazy... a bit of a soggy day. Got out by early afternoon. Met the Kid at the cemetery to bring Your Wall some flowers & say hello. Dropped off a few to Owen. Honestly, I feel you here at home much more than the Cemetery. So I put flowers by you at home.
~
Took the Rigs to wash & clip. Took me three hours. He was pretty good. Getting better. I thought of you the entire time... all the way back when we brought Rox down at a few months old to the last time in December when you helped me with Rigs. ~
Quiet weekend. The rain continues.
Oh! My favorite Oriental Poppies started blooming just in time for this weekend. Reminds me so much of your Dad and my Dad in WWII. 
Love you. Missing you deeply.
DF

A few years ago, I couldn't imagine being in a white dress with a veil draped over my shoulders. Most of the time, I could only imagine a cloak of grief, of victimhood, draped over my shoulders instead. There were times the pain and devastation of death was so great that it covered visions of the future and many days and nights - the future seemed too scary and just too dark to navigate into.
_
It was comfortable sitting in the darkness and hiding under my cloak of victimhood; grief gave me an authority to remain broken, a victim, and lost for as long as I wanted. And while I'm a STRONG advocate for feeling your emotions & knowing it's okay to not be okay, I am an even STRONGER advocate that it's okay to not be okay BUT it's not okay to stay there. That's the danger of grief and brokenness - it wants you to get comfortable, to snuggle up under the cloak of victimhood, and welcomes you to stay as long as you want.
_
While grief and brokenness may have given me this authority, I had to realize that Jesus gives me an even greater authority. He gives us the authority through His Word, the Holy Spirit, and His sacrifice on the cross to tear off the cloak of victimhood and replace it with a cloak of freedom. We have the ability to find and approach Him in the darkness, deal with our hurts/pain/sin, and choose to make the decision to find freedom and heal.
-
Authority is defined as "official permission; the right to make decisions and enforce something". He's given us permission and access to seek Him in the darkness, and choose what cloak we'll wear: one of victimhood or one of freedom. We have the choice to let the pain define us or to put the hard work in & enforce the truth, promises, & freedom over ourselves that He’s given. Declare the authority He’s given you, choose healing, & replace that cloak of victimhood with your cloak of freedom!

Grief is a very natural response to losing someone or something that’s important to you. We may feel a variety of emotions, like sadness or loneliness. How we cope with grief is unique and no two people grieve the same way, with the same intensity or for the same duration. The stages of grief are not meant to be a complete list of the emotions that can be felt. There is no particular order to the stages – even the progress through the stages is unique to the individual. 
The identified stages of grief include:
1) Denial
2) Anger
3) Bargaining
4) Depression
5) Acceptance

You went out with the tide,
My heart was left on the shoreline.
Oh, love forlorn... You went out with the tide,
My heart left to mourn why.
Oh, love forlorn... You went out with the tide. / “The tide”, a new song

If the sea left and never returned, we’d find in us some deep longing for it. We’d grieve the vast ocean-turned-desert. We might stand on what once was the shore, straining for some sparkling glimpse of its return on the horizon... So it is with unrequited love. Be it a lover who left with another; be it a loved one who has taken to the life after this; be it the longing of parental love, lost to the past; each present unspeakable tragedy and pain to the heart. “The tide” is an ode to love lost. It is my hope that it will provide a ground to mourn and find freedom to leave the need for the shore and truly live.

No two grief journeys are the same. There are no rules. Grief can feel like a Tsunami of emotions at times. 
Shock. 
Anger.
Fear.
Sadness plus so many more. 
Working towards your “new normal” will be a journey for you. Go Gently and be kind to yourself.

Hey 👋🏼 nana!

We may be miles apart (she loves her #jersey) but not a day goes by that I don’t think of and feel the strength and love of this fire ball.

And with a maiden name of Leyden, I’m pretty sure you can figure out where my daughter got her spunk and fight.

Wishing everyone a weekend full of squeezing the people they love and remembering how lucky we are to do this thing called life.

But when it came to loving you..!? Well I think I did the best damn job I could...heck look at that smile right!? xo

Really...forget the goals, the expectations you set for yourself, and just be present and intentional with loving yourself more. •••
It’s ok to take a year off. To just be. Especially after you experience something traumatic. Your mind + body need time to process and heal. ••• That’s been my focus and I can tell you - it’s necessary. As I head further into my birth month with my birthday approaching on the 15th, I become more relaxed and happy. ••• Still processing what happened and currently what’s happening, still regaining energy, releasing more weight of emotional attachment to sad engraved memories, trying to create space for the good ones, releasing fear and gaining more power in awareness of who I am and what I need.
••• Next year will be my year to crush it with business. But until then, I’m really listening to what my soul needs, to relax + recover. ••• It’s ok if a time out is what you need. Don’t focus either on where other people are going in their lives and what they’re accomplishing while you take that time. You will get there again. Rebuild the foundation first.
