I’ve felt so incredibly alone since my miscarriage. It’s very difficult to explain because I have the most extraordinary friends in my real life (trying) to support me.
And it’s impossible for me, at this point, to feel a connection to so many of the women I have met online. The bottom line is, the bulk of them are either pregnant, or have had babies, and I’m a have not who is still crying, daily. It’s very isolating.
For the first time since my miscarriage, I will be stepping out of my comfort bubble next week. I feel (gently) bullied but, I will support one of those extraordinary friends at a talk show and I’m attending an evening event in NYC for her as well. Big steps for someone who would still rather hide her head.
Oh and, one last thing… I’ve read some comments that my situation has been difficult for some women to stomach in their pregnant state. To this, allow me to remind you of two things: I did not ask to miscarry (I mean, REALLY, after years of trying to conceive followed by years of treatments?) AND this is my space to post my feelings. If it upsets you so much, don’t fucking read it? Ok? Ok.
