What’s My Grief, Interrupted?

June 10, 2010

I’ve had a few relatively unusual grief experiences that have had an impact on my own life. There was a formative experience as a 3-year-old after my mom suffered a stillbirth … followed by silence. There was the tragic death of my once-troubled 21-year-old brother in a car accident … followed by a mix of silence and wistfulness. There was the birth of my my first child, a little boy with a mystery disorder … followed by a breaking of this habit of silence.

I’m a talker. I process out loud. The words bolt out of my mouth, scattered, untethered. As I reach out, wrapping my brain around them, they begin to form cogent thoughts. Awareness of my feelings and emotions grows. Healing begins.

I want to help others recognize their grief and process it, too.

      Thank you for your kind words, Janine. I know we met for just a few days more than a year ago, but I’ve come to truly value this now-and-again connection. I hope we physically cross paths again, too. For now, cyberspace will have to do.
