Today is International Bereaved Mother's Day. I am doing pretty well after my MC back in February.
I saw a picture that said what today was so I posted it as my cover picture.
I know so many people who have had a loss and I feel people should be aware and that MC are more common than people know. Most people on FB do not know I had a MC. I thought the pic was so pretty and was nice to have a day for us mothers not just me.
I get an email this morning from my husbands niece.
heather, I want for you to move on, live in the present and look to the future. Don't dwell in the past. I'm not thrilled with you profile pic, to me it speaks volumes that your not okay. You shouldn't be feeling the need to announce your loss, but rather to focus on the positive and stay happy about being able to try again. I hope you take my words as love and positive reinforcement. Get up, get out, get on, life keeps going, keeps moving and changing. Stay strong, stay happy, stay positive. xoxox
I was kind of hurt by this email. I have not seen her in person since my MC I don't talk about in on fb. I just posted the picture never said snything about my mc. The thing that gets me is this person has had a MC and now had two kids.
How would you feel if you got this email? Am I upset for nothing or do you think I have the right to be a little hurt by it? I am not crying daily, I go to work, been in such a great mood and we are going to be TTC again.
Just would like some of your thoughts. Thanks!!
