Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
I hear you Karen. I get the same thing. Wow - I just have to walk away.
I am so stunned what comes out of people's mouths!
All these years later ... And when I do leave my house (as I have become so recluse)
I still hear insensitive comments just last week - I was told that not only was this gods plan I agreed to it before I was ever born.
Where do people come up with this stuff?
Wow, that is one of the stupidest things I have ever heard.
we should write a book on all the things NOT TO SAY OR SUGGEST WHEN SOMEONE YOU KNOW LOSES A CHILD ..
I say the one with God doesn't give us more than we can handle, even to myself. I honestly believe this, but sometimes it does feel like it especially when you have lost a child, no matter how old. And my response to they can't handle, I say, "I can't imagine handle it either, but I have too." That usually stops them in their tracks.
Best response I've heard yet.. hope I remember it next time someone says something stupid....
Karen you said this 2009. People including my grief counselor said the same thing on our first visit. "I just can't image, what is going through your mind"
I wanted to say, "Really..as the tears fall and mucus from my nose keep running."
I couldn't be as strong as you....
---I'm the strongest weakling I know then
What doesn't kill you makes you stronger...
---survival is overrated
