I’ve written quite a bit about my miscarriages (both here and on facebook). It’s therapeutic for me to write it out, but I also think it’s something that needs to be openly talked about more often. Miscarriage is devastating, lonely and can be very isolating. As a woman, we feel like we’ve failed somehow and don’t want anyone to know about it. So we keep it to ourselves. But it’s more common than you realize, and we shouldn’t have to suffer or grieve alone. We weren’t meant to go through it alone. We were created for community and relationships (in both good AND crappy times). It’s okay to say “this happened to me….and it sucked big time”.
I hope that by sharing my story with people that it offers some comfort and hope, or if anything just lets you know that you’re not alone.
