Do you find it easier to open up to your online support circle or friends and family in real life?

Online. Don't get me wrong, my family and friends are really fantastic at providing support, but unless you have lost a child yourself it's hard to really understand, so online support is really critical.

I also find it much easier to talk with people online. I find it difficult to talk to friends or family face to face about my losses in case I can't keep it together.

I agree with both of you. I prefer online support because I get too emotional and because nobody understands what it is like. Also, it seems like very few people are actually interested in listening to me. I want to talk about my children and what it is like to lose them, but I think most people aren't comfortable with the subject matter.

I think often IRL people are worried about upsetting you and don't realise that sometimes you need to talk. When you're online and coming to a loss board you know that you're around people who understand and who need to talk too x
