Why do I blog about child loss and how I feel?
1. It makes me feel better – I find it cathartic.
2. To understand what is happening (to myself) – with some more clarity by writing it down and sharing it.
3. Four years ago I had sought and found information [link] ( – most helpful when in the form of personal stories), about life after child loss, and I hope these posts are found by those who need them.
4. For readers to get an idea of what child loss can do to parents, so that they don’t take it personally when – for an example – their invitations or gestures of friendship are are declined. Specially when the grieving parent/s seem to be meeting other people or seem to be generally getting on with their life – try and remember you don’t know what they are coping with. Let them be. This needs a separate post.
Remembered this today.
