You reminded me of what I sometimes said in the first few years after our loss (and I felt strangley peaceful saying it)It. "It's hard to be a human being". But I never felt diminshed or at risk or overly sad in saying t...

Re: my friend's son committed suicide

A thousand baulking scenarios prevent the awful, terrible pain, of sharing grief. There are no guide books to this loss within relationships. Please try. You are allowed to embark on new territory. It's like walking naked ie. I am walking naked towards something that does not see my nakedness, and y...

Re: Birthday

Somehow, I have an ageing version of Rory that accompanies me over these last few the years (as well as a baby, small child, grumpy teenager etc.). Does Dylan remain young AND yet older to you cali?

After 5 years, my own recollection with the experience of early loss is not as easy to draw on as it once was - I feel impotent in the face of the enormity of your losses.
