Post Trauma - there is a silver lining

Hi All

I haven't posted in years as life has become a whirlwind of change and thankfully for the better. 

Following my last entry, that 'nice guy' has become my 3rd (and final ha ha) husband. I was reluctant to remarry, and even my mom on her deathbed said just be happy who cares anymore. That in itself was a miracle as she was staunchly conservative and wanted me to be a traditional 'married with children' woman. That sadly (and blessedly) eluded me in the past.

Both my…

For all of us

Angel Moms

We have shared our tears and our sorrow,

We have given encouragement to each other,

Given hope for a brighter tomorrow,

We share the title of grieving mother.

Some of us lost older daughters or sons,

Who we watched grow over the years,

Some have lost their babies before their lives begun,

But no matter the age, we cry the same tears.

We understand each others pain,

The bond we share is very strong,

With each other…

16 Years this year

16 years this year my precious baby girl. I always wonder what you would have been like you would have had your matric dance last year I think you would have gone in takkies or barefoot you were never a girly girl even at 2 and a half years old.

I saw the doctor the other day it was pure shock like a lightning bolt went through me. I just stared at him while he sipped his coffee. I knew he would go there again so I went there a second time made eye contact and just stared at him I…

15 months later

Kim has been dead for 15 months now and still the pain and longing persist.  I don't cry as much or as often as I used to and I have learned to function fairly well in a world that just relentlessly keeps demanding that you rush around doing inane things and "get over it"!  Well for those of us who know this pain of losing a child - no matter what age or how it happened, you don't just "get over it".  I have come to the conclusion that I will never "get over it" - its not a decision I have…

Time

Tomorrow is 15 years, I still cant believe it. I always wonder what you would have looked like? Still blonde? tall or short? sporty? And that's all I have is to wonder. Two and a half years old and your life was cut short and I have the same anger today as I had 15 years ago. Does the doctor who did this ever…

THE 9TH YEAR!

So it begins......2015 is here and I don't think of this any different than the past 8 New Year's. This is already the 9th year without my son Keith here. This is so incredibly distressing to me. How did time move so fast? How did we "survive" 8 whole years of this misery? How do we go on, day after day ,living and working and functioning when such a HUGE piece of our family is…

HANDLING HOLIDAY GRIEF #1: Holidays? Yeah, Right.

“Holidays? Yeah, right.” Jamie snorted. “Try celebrating anything while your heart is being ripped in two. The ripping began when he died, and it hasn’t let up since.”

The holidays are normally a stressful time of year. But to face them while immersed in all-out grief can be almost impossible to…

“You’re a Strong Person” Comment about Grief: Some Personal Thoughts

“You’re a Strong Person” Comment about Grief: Some Personal Thoughts

In 2007 four family members – my daughter, father-in-law, brother and only sibling, and my former son-in-law -- all died. My daughter and her former husband died in separate car crashes. Their deaths made my twin grandchildren orphans and my husband and me their guardians. Time and again, friends told me “You’re a strong person,” a comment I came to dread.

Yes, I’m a strong person, but that doesn’t…

New Normal A path I did not choose.

ʚϊɞ This is my new path. It was not a path of my choice, but it is a path I must walk mindfully with intention. It is a journey through grief that takes time. Every cell in my body aches and longs to be with my beloved child. I may be impatient, distracted, frustrating, and unfocused. I may get angry more easily, or I may seem hopeless. I will shed many, many, many tears. I won’t smile as often as my old self. Smiling hurts now. Most everything hurts…

My Story

On 29 November 1997 I was working at Cathedral Peak Hotel in the Drakensberg. My daughter, her fiancé and his brother were on their way from Benoni to celebrate my birthday with me the following day. They never arrived, they were all killed when an approaching driver fell asleep at the wheel and hit them head on. It will be seventeen years this year but I still miss them so much
