This Club We Never Wanted To Join

When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy-hearted into which our grief has given us entrance, and inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy, their understanding.

Thank you so much for sharing your stumbling blocks with me. It helps so much to know I'm not alone in these things. That I'm not crazy. Or if I am, we all are.

We now belong to a club none of us wanted to join. But I do feel comforted to know that there are people out there who understand. Who share my sorrow, who understand. It makes all the difference in the world.

Thank you.
peace-

Thank you Emily, for giving us this safe place. Your posts have helped me toward healing, and for that I can't thank you enough.
It is such a release for me to be about to share my thoughts and know that those listening understand the way others who are close to me just can't. I know you have mentioned the Share message boards, but for now I prefer this small intimate group that we have here. My heart aches for everyone here and I have so much love for all of you. Thank you Emily for bringing us together.

It is nice to see that there are other people out there who went through what I did. My family kind of thinks it is no big deal. My miscarriage happen so soon after I found out that I was pregnant. I can hear my family say that I need to get over it.

And we in turn open our arms to others as they become members of a club that they never thought they'd be a part of.

Empathy and support are so important as we walk along this lonely road. It's nice to find a network that offers both.

Hey Emily... just wanted to check in and see if all is well with you? Haven't seen you yet log into the forums for the Grief: Finding Our Way session, and wanted to be sure my email about all that reached you. Have you been able to get to and download the materials?
Lots of miracles to you!

Thanks for all your kind comments. You know when you are having kind of a down week and then someone comes along and kicks you in the head? That is what this week has been like. I'm hoping things will settle down soon.
