    Grieving

    I don't want to talk to people I know about it. I don't want to share my misery with people, even online. But this grief is building inside me, and I fear its release. Everywhere I look, there are children or things pertaining to children. Its been 8 days since my miscarriage...

    I found out I was pregnant last summer on

    Father's Day which sadly ended in a miscarriage a little over a week later. I suffered emotionally and mentally with that and it was one of the hardest things I went through even though it ended so soon. No one knows how much it's affected me.
