While I was in the hospital every one tried to put all items that could trigger me out of sight. Today I was cleaning my purse out and I found this treasure at the bottom. This was my little buddy and helped so much for the morning sickness. So much that the words are gone on the end of the label. I felt that wave of grief coming and the tears would just not stop falling. The smallest things will bring on a breakdown these days. Yesterday it was my auto correct changing a word to "sleeps". A word I used often to countdown to ultrasounds. Those girls were so much of our life and no matter how much we tried to remove triggers, it is impossible. So much love for those girls. #brokenheart#brokendreams#godsplan#twinlosssurvivor#twinlossmom#stillborn#bornstillbutstillborn#angelbabies#angelmom#1in4#stillbirth #griefjourney #grieflookslikethis#grieving#twinloss
After Gee I kinda forgot how to breathe. I’d find myself holding my breath and I’d have to remind myself to take a breath. One thing helped me. Meditation. It allowed to to calm down and take a breath. I’m a qualified hypnotherapist & counsellor and I’m thinking about starting to record little meditation sessions in my spare time especially for the bereaved and put them on soundcloud for free for anyone to use. A lot of meditations focus on feeling gratitude and emotions which can be difficult for us. Would some people find that useful? . . . #siblingloss#siblingloss#nonprofit#lifeafterloss#grievingsister#grievingbrother#griefjourney #saytheirname#siblingsgrievetoo#mentalhealth#bereavedsibling#bereavedsiblings#siblinggrief#brother#griefsucks#siblings#death#grief#griefsucks#griefstages#griefandlosssupport#grieftherapy#griefwarrior#griefstories
A few years ago I had three deaths all in quick succession - the one that hit the hardest was my dad. And it kind of broke a part of me - a part that was caring too much, that was trying to be everything for everyone, a part that gave things too much power over my life. While a part of me hates being vague another part of me isn’t ready to process hard news with the rest of the world so just know in the days and months ahead I might be distant, I might disappear, I might need to do what I need to do to take care of myself. That’s just who I now. #griefjourney #fuckthisshit#thatswhatfriendsarefor

When i came back I forgot i bought a chocolate croissant. It was from the same vendor who i had visited and bought croissants with my ex during the second time we went to a farmers market. I would always buy them since she would always drive... It was hard to get this. I wanted to challenge and build nice memories for me. But i was so scared he would say “hey where’s your lovely lady friend?” Scared of the and loneliness i would feel. But he didn’t ask, and I forgot about the croissant until i searched my bag. Ate it. It’s just a croissant. It’s just a pastry and chocolate. It’s not her memory. It’s not her thoughts and feelings. It’s not her. They’re in the past or gone. I’ve started having memories and thoughts pop up of her again. To be expected. They still hurt, but i find i catch myself quicker and the methods to ground myself are becoming more natural. Still, they are there. She’s still on my mind. I’m grieving. I continue to grieve her loss. I’ve neglected to mention that I stopped being vegetarian since i was broken up with. Not because... or just because i was partly being vegetarian for her sake, but because i still haven’t become mentally healthy enough, stable enough to really do daily tasks regularly, like cook for myself. I do takeout or premade food still. I do laundry sporadically. The dishes need to be done. Expired food need to be thrown out. Also, the food i’d cook for myself would be food i cooked for her... so its also breaking down associations, which take time. Every time i look at the foods i want to cook, i think of how lonely it would be to eat alone... i’d think of just how empty the chair next to me is. How i made enough for two... how I feel my waist in need of a hug that it will never receive as i do the dishes. Every day i struggle with self worthlessness and in a way a loss of self. It’s only recently i’ve made breakthroughs with love, self love and progressing grief. Everyday i feel like there’s something about me that’s not enough. But every day i get closer to being self loving. Every day i fight to be patient with myself. I’m just frightened that maybe i’m being too patient. Maybe i should do more.
I never knew a little person could bring so much joy. . There were times when I wondered what my purpose was in life, there were times when I even wondered if I would bare a child. Well, not only did God give me one chance, but he gave me two. . . Have you ever been in a battle that you thought you would loose? . My life started out this way. I walked different, I talked different when I put my faith in God. Not only did he assure me, but he showed me that he will not leave nor forsake me. . I bece the warrior I today because.. . 🌠I didn’t give up on Gods promises . 🌠 I knew that he had purpose behind my pain . 🌠 I knew that I would be an inspiration for someone who needed to hear it . For the woman who wants to give up because you have been through more than you can bear, hold on Queen because your prayers WILL be answered. ♥️ . . . . .
