Ten Things Aside From Grief

So I came across this article
Courtesy of Still Standing Magazine, so I thought I would have a go. 
We all know I like a mini challenge or two. 
The article brings something interesting, and something I can relate to. 
Being “The Baby Loss Mum” it separates you from normal parents, not just physically being seen
“she’s the one who lost a child” But for me being an outsider looking in, “Why aren’t people wanting full term births?” “Why aren’t they taking proper care of themselves?”
You can only raise awareness to those who want to be aware. 
Being a bereaved parent you kind of forget who you are. 
Should I smile, should I cry?
So this little project to be shared within the community.

    Aw! You did so much better at this than I. 🙂 I can relate to several things you wrote (Rowling and writing especially). Have you read The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor?

    You're welcome! I would be interested to hear your thoughts on the book. It came highly recommended to me, but I didn't connect with it like I had hoped!

    Thank you~ I am so sorry to you as well. I am thankful for the community, but I wish there was no need for it.
