I think if I had received emotional support through my miscarriage, it would not have gotten so bad. Unfortunately, I had a very selfish boyfriend that would not even attempt to understand how I felt and was too wrapped up in his own $hit to be there for me.
Thank you for sharing these articles!!! I have just burst in to tears reading one of them!
I really am not the only one who feels I am insane!
i am currently off work with anxiety after my mmc. I went back to work after 2 weeks of losing my baby at 12 weeks and realised it was too soon. it took a further 5 weeks back there before it finally hit me (I work in a maternity ward too) I walked out of work and cried for 2 days straight and couldnt get out of bed. Every day is different and the way it has been described on these articles really is true. We are expected to move on from a mc far too quick and too easy. there should be more support for us.
Sorry to anyone who reads this and has experienced a loss of their baby.
For me I was barely 6 weeks along, yet I had no emotional support (my boyfriend even broke up with me 2 weeks after my miscarriage). Everyone expected me to put it behind me. My life became in shambles. I could not stop crying or get off the couch. My parents had to come and get my two daughters and I had to move back in with them because I completely feel apart. A doctor diagnosed me as manic because I have a history of bipolar disorder which I kept under control without medication for 7 years and I can tell when I'm manic and I know I wasn't. It was good for me to read this and see what is really wrong with me and that it is not just me.
Hi, I'm here via a pingback to my blog, the Trial of Labor. It started as a cesarean awareness, support, and natural birth advocacy blog and morphed into a cesarean and loss awareness, support, and advocacy blog. Lately it's been majorly on the back burner.
Those of you who perhaps visited my blog may know that I miscarried 3 times IN A ROW. But I did go on to have a successful pregnancy and now have lovely 9 month old twins. I can't believe it some days. I feel so fortunate.
I know some of you are experiencing your darkest saddest hours. I hope you find your silver lining. I wish you health. I pray for your babies, past and future.
