I have agreed to do a video for Gidget House the charity that helps parents with their emotional wellbeing. I had a call with the director today and it was quite emotional telling our story again. I hope that by speaking up other women going through this can feel less alone. I also hope they can feel like it is ok to go and speak to someone if they are struggling. There are no rules to grief. When or how it hits you. A perfect timeline for when you will finally feel ‘OK’. It is a rollercoaster ride with many ups and downs. There are days and moments that are very tough. There are also many light filled days full of joy. I feel like it is important to share our grief and feelings with those close to us. I also think speaking to someone that is not in your immediate circle it can also help. A non-biased opinion that can help guide you on this journey. For me the combination of my darling husband, friends, family, other loss parents and a psychologist for a few sessions have all been a part of my healing journey. I am feeling so much stronger now. I know that I will still have days where I tumble down and fall. I am feeling so much lighter now as each day passes.
Hamish you light my soul on fire.
