The grief cycle

When the Statesman reporter came to talk to us after Kellen was born she told me that she read my blog and could see the grief cycle when looking at it objectively and in its entirety. I just re-read my entire blog and am surprised by my frame of mind at different points. This week has been really hard. I am starting to see the toll this is taking on me emotionally and on our relationship. Like I said yesterday, I was surprised by how angry I was when I started talking about our loss. I've cried more this week than I have since the first week. The grief cycle isn't linear. There are moments of acceptance, moments of anger, moments of incredible denial. And I wonder how long we will continue to cycle.

  1. I am sorry for your loss. Grief is an individual journey, which is shared by many. It keeps cycling until it doesn't. I wish you the best. elaine

  2. I am so sorry that you and your family have had to go through so much. Life is a continuous cycle of emotions that we must accept in order to move forward. I also wish you and your family the best.
