Write for yourself

With something so close and personal, my suggestion is to write for yourself first. When my son died, I put a lot of things in writing. It can be an amazing release and very healing, but at the same time it was extremely personal, which is why I wrote FOR ME!

Like being on an airplane with the oxygen masks falling down - put your mask on first so that you are then able to help others get theirs on. Write for yourself and try to heal your own wounds first.

It is a "forever" thing... losing a child.

Hugs to you.

          I worry about opening old wounds. Trying, at this time, may be more pain than joy for you right now. However, if you feel the need to tell your story, perhaps you could share it with someone else... more

              I have been 'lucky' in that with the small family it is now just my Mom and I. She is 85, so I know in the next few years I will lose her as well. I can only offer my prayers and thoughts to you as... more
