I feel like i am still struggling with my stillbirth. My son would be 14 now. I still cant cope that he has gone. I dont know what im meant to do. Its been 14 years and i still find it really hard. I dont feel like anything helps me.
14 years is a long time, has something happened recently that has made you start grieving for your loss, from what I’ve read if you didn’t grieve properly at the time of the loss it can affect you later in life, we all grieve our peoples lost futures but losing a child that has had no life at all must be devastating.
I’m a bloke so can’t appreciate fully what it means to have a stillborn, I’m sure a lady will post a reply soon.
Grief is grief no matter how long ago the loss.
I’m so sorry to hear this sammi. Have you ever had any support for your loss? Xx
Thank you and i probably didnt grieve properly at the time when i actually think about it.
I have had some support but it always ends and there is only so much free support available. I tend to find i have to go with the sessions and then wait 6 months before i can get any more help.
Are there any support groups? Often it helps being around others (even just virtually ) who truly understand x
I’m not sure i will have to try that. Thank you
I lost my daughter 13 yrs ago, fullterm Stillborn. The pain is endless, Ive tortured myself, post mortem had no findings. She was my only baby that survived over 8weeks, 11 miscarriages and then to be blessed with 37 weeks glowing, and totally in love waiting to meet her. Now all I have is an aching heart, her burial plot and a headstone. I feel your pain.
I am so sorry to hear this. Its absolutely heartbreaking. Sending you a massive hug x
