I think sometimes people post things hoping not for sympathy but to connect with someone who has gone through something similar. We all express ourselves differently and if posting and sharing their pain helps someone feel a little better about themselves for the day then I'm all for it. I've had my share of crappy days and sometimes a kind comment, even from a stranger, makes me feel so much better.

GREAT post, LB..

you are so right in what you say..

I hadn't the personal experience of a child
who died and .. because I hadn't..

I understand I have no
idea of the intense emotion it would spark off..

I have been very close to a dear friend who had a daughter
with *severe* DOWNS SYNDROME..

she lived to 40 yrs of age -
[tho' she had the appearance of a 12 year old]

when she died ..
and was buried in a small white coffin.

The mother was ' a saint' NOTHING short of it....
stood by her 'alone' EVERY minute of her life;
had two hip replacements directly associated with
lifting her dear helpless daughter.. through the years until her death.

Her husband didn't want to know

[for some reason]!

Still, I'll not be his judge here,
as his WONDERFUL wife never judged him..
she just got on with it.

Those of you here 'know HOW complicated these things can be'..

and, in your case. Laura, I always admire YOUR handling of it.
