When I miscarried the first time I didn’t write about it.
I had not yet started this journal.
I did start reading a few other journals at the time where the authors talked about their own miscarriages.
Those journals were a lifeline to me then as I was so lost and alone.
Those journals inspired me to start this journal over two years ago.
I have talked about my previous miscarriage in this journal but mostly in entries about our secondary infertility struggles.
This time I want to write about the miscarriage…the physical and the emotional aspects.
The writing has already started to help me in my healing process and I can only hope that maybe my words will help someone else who is going through this not feel so alone.
In my previous entries where I noted that these entries were more for my benefit than for anyone else’s what I meant was that even though I always write my entries for me these entries will be filled with some very personal information and be a bit depressing for others to read.
I have some regular readers who comment pretty faithfully but my feelings will not be hurt if you choose not to comment on these entries as I know how hard it is to know what to say to someone dealing with miscarriage.
