Late Term and Child Loss

Tough week ahead...

I'm scheduled to go back to work on Thursday (half days Thur/Fri to make sure I'm physically ok) and I'm really nervous about it. Between a vacation we took and losing Jack, I've only worked 12 hours the month of December. I hope I remember how to do my job, lol

We also made an appointment with a grief counselor. I was surprised she was able to get us in so quick but we see her Thursday night. I'm all sorts of mixed feelings about seeing her. From completely scared to have to relive this ordeal to relief that I've found someone that will hopefully help DH and I get through this together.

Re: Tough week ahead...

  • Going back to work is rough. Take as many breaks as you can, the bathroom and my office door were my best friends for a couple of weeks.
    I hope you can find comfort in going to grief counseling.

  • MH and I have been doing grief counseling and have found it to be helpful. It's nice to have a safe place to talk, and to have someone who facilitates that. GL with this upcoming week and going back to work. ((Hugs))

  • As others have said, going back to work is tough, but having half days to start sounds like a good plan. Starting grief counseling can also be really helpful, especially in transitioning back to work. GL on Thursday, sending you lots of (((hugs))) for a smooth day back.

  • Thinking of you. Going back to work can be really hard at first but many find it helpful to get into a routine and keep busy. I think it's wonderful that you are going to a therapist. I recently started going again and I am soooo glad I did. Initially it was hard to have to tell her my story but once she got to know me better it was much easier. I hope that your experience with your therapist brings you as much comfort and support as it has for me.
