Everything about living after losing a child is exhausting. And I don't even feel like I can stop and really grieve my child. I have too many responsibilities and 2 living children who depend on me. I feel like if I stop, I might not be able to go on again. So for now, I will pause (not stop) and cry for my forever 15 month old.  I wake up every morning so sad. I can't do this anymore I am so sick of feeling like this and now it is making me physically sick. I am mad, hurt, guilt is eating me alive. I am to the point that I just don't know what to do to get that energy back . The don't want to be around people. Everyone else is moving on but me.

Sweet Mama, grief is a painful and isolating journey. Having a place of community with others who understand is so helpful in knowing you are not alone. I want to invite you to a completely free online grief workshop called 3 Pillars to find healing in grief. This is not a workshop that is trying to force joy or happiness on you. This is not a workshop trying to rush or diminish your grief. But we will explore ways of supporting and caring for ourselves with such a painful experience. So come join me on Wednesday Sept 18th at 5 pm CST. You can register for this free workshop below!
