How is everyone doing today?

I'm still in the stage (I hope it's just a stage?) where I'm all over the place. Sunday I felt miserable, but had stuff planned with DH and my parents so I just faked it all day and ended up crying for a good part of the night and the next morning. But yesterday (Tuesday) I felt great. Today's been somewhere in between.

How about you?

I'm about where you are. I'm still not sleeping at night, and spend the night crying. I've gone back to work, and I can pretty much hold it together there, but as soon as I have a quiet moment, I fall apart.

I hope you get to a point where things get easier.

I have to go back to work in a week and a half. I'm dreading it. Maybe it'll be good for me, who knows?

I hope that for you as well. *hugs* Hang in there. It can only get better, right?

Lets hope it gets better. Just when I think I am having a great day I end up crying my eyes out. It is 2 weeks today since our Cora left and god I hope it gets easier.

Well, Cora's birthday is coming up, so it's been on my mind lately.

But honestly? I am all over the place too, 5 years later. I just spend longer in the good places, if that makes sense. I think grief is a better described as a journey or a process than a series of stages. You're never really "done."

I actually wrote a blog post about it a while back (here)

To you ladies. At first it's so hard. After a while, I don't know, I hope this doesn't sound jaded, but you get used to it.
Thanks to babydoll213 for the siggy! My kids' blog Cora's blog

Ladies, your losses are all still very new. I promise it will get better. The hard days will become fewer and you will have good days more often. Your babies will always be a part of your lives and you will always miss them, but after a while, you won't cry every day and you will sometimes be able to talk about your sweet little one without crying (not always, but sometimes). You find a new normal and learn to live with the hole in heart that losing your baby has left.
It's been over a year and a half for me and life is good again. I still have days that I miss Eli and cry but not near as often as the first few months after losing him. I think about him often but can (sometimes) have peace about him not being here with me.
