Miscarriage: I wanted to scream. #miscarriage #repost #blog #miscarriagesupportby Ellen DuBois on 09/07/17
I think many of you can relate to this. After my miscarriage, I felt like nobody really understood the depth of my loss...how it consumed me. Please take heart. I know the road you're walking and over time, things do get easier. Be as patient with yourself as you can. Allow yourself to feel. While you're going through the worst of it, please know there are people who get it, get you and understand the gravity of your loss. Love and support to you, Ellen
For anyone either living through this now or has lived through life after miscarriage, I am so sorry for your loss.
MiscarriageHelp.com: The past ten years have been filled with tears, support, empathy, growing and understanding. A sisterhood of women who've shared the pain of miscarriage has formed and grown in a way only the Internet can provide because of its reach.
I never dreamed back when this site began that it would grow so exponentially.
I've been honored and am still honored to provide this platform for women, (men, too), to share their feelings after miscarriage. Often times, we feel supported simply by reading the comments made by others. Many times, you feel better by sharing what's been on your mind and heart with others. The act of "letting it out" goes a long way towards helping you heal.
Small steps. One day at a time.
How we grieve and what we experience after miscarriage is as different as we are. Yet, living through such a painful loss connects us. This connection, although we wish we never had to share it, gives us a certain comfort and reassurance. It speaks to your heart saying "You're not alone in this." Believe me, you are not.
That's the reason MiscarriageHelp.com exists and will continue to exist. That's the reason I wrote my book, too. But, there's another reason. I believe writing about my own experience after miscarriage helped me heal. I didn't know it at the time. It was a process. All these years later I see clearly how writing about my own pain, what helped and what didn't was in fact a form of therapy for me. Ten years later, I could probably write from an additional perspective- one with ten more years of growing and learning, sharing and caring.
I am continuing to share many of the comments made at MiscarriageHelp.com over the past ten years. Some date as far back as 2006. As I type this, I feel butterflies in my stomach and a deep feeling of gratitude. I am so thankful for having this site up so I could reach out. I am grateful to each and every one of you who has commented, shared your support or simply stopped by to read the comments here. We have all reached out to each other and to countless others.
To all of you who have experienced the pain of miscarriage, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you always. - Ellen
