What was it like going back to work after your loss?

For me, it was super awkward. I really didn't want to go and I took a week of sick leave and a week of bereavement leave. I felt like I couldn't look anyone in the eye and I wanted to talk about it but I didn't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. I didn't know how much they knew but I somehow wanted to make them understand what I had been through so they would cut me some slack and realize that I wasn't just being weak or dramatic, and that it really was a trauma.

  • I agree.  That's how I was.  I have a client that has had kids removed from her custody and she pregnant now. So I asked for her to be moved to someone's workload. My boss was very accommodating.   Thank goodness cuz I couldn't handle that
