Gutted. — The Bump
TTC After a Loss


I've been struggling this month and I know why. But then I was reminded precisely when my world shifted. I wasn't looking for it, but I found this post (image below) in a private Tumblr I started long ago and rarely ever post in. . . 

I am just so devastated that there has been no resolution yet. And I cry for the fact that we are different people than when this started. Not all for the better. I feel like I'm broken and I've broken the people around me.... Like I'm taking people out on my way down, and frankly, sometimes I feel like I would rather just suffer alone. I'm not trying to be a martyr, I just think it'd be easier if I could contain the fall out.  

Husband actually told me tonight that he feels like he has lost a piece of him and he doesn't know how to get it back. It hurts so badly to hear that. 

Now he's sleeping on the couch and I'm torturing myself by re-living heartache after heartache. I need to just go to bed. Tomorrow will be better.

Thank you all for allowing me the space to vent and moan.

Re: Gutted.

  • I've often felt the same way about taking people down with me. On my worst days, I've told H thst I wish he would just leave me so I could suffer alone. I don't really mean it, but there is a guilt that comes with feeling this bad and bringing him down again and again. 

    Im so sorry for your losses. Sending hugs and I hope you feel better soon.

  • So sorry to hear you are struggling. I think it's the realization for the passage of time for me too most of the time. I was a different person before TTC and loss, and I was also 4 years younger, so of course I am different in other ways too. When did time in my life start moving so fast? I feel like I'm on this runaway train of life all of a sudden...

    I hope today is a better day for you. You know where to find us when you need to vent, so vent away!
  • I hope this morning brings you some relief and clarity. We do all change over the course of time, and sometimes the weight of our heartbreaks feels heavier than others. Do what you need to do to keep on your healing journey; which of course includes talking through the darkest of dark feelings.

  • I am so very sorry. There's nothing I can say to make it better, but I wish there was. When life takes these unexpected turns, it's heartbreaking. It's not fair. Thinking of you today.
  • I hope you were able to get some rest.  Sending you peaceful, gentle hugs.
