I'm just exhausted

P wanted to go for a walk today so we took the big dogs and she E and I went for a walk. It was nice to get out but still felt as though everyone was looking at me. We got home and the neighbors asked how I was. I couldn't lie, I said I feel like shit. I do. I don't do anything for myself, I have to almost leave myself notes to brush my teeth and take a shower. I've given up on my happiness and have not put more effort into the kids and them being happy. A person that I know is pregnant and is due 2 weeks after I was. We talked and I asked her if she found out the sex of her baby. She said she was having a boy. I had a feeling she was going to have a boy and it just cut through my heart. I envisioned the future and my little guy wasn't a part of it. I held it together until I went in the house and I just broke down. I am very happy for her I'm just more sad for us. I still question WHY. I just want an answer as to why Tred won't be able to grow-up and play with us or is brothers and sisters. I worry about the impact his death is on the children. P doesn't want to talk about him, E talks about him all the time and B somehow feels he's the reason he passed away. I am now trying to deal with my sadness and on top of it I have to figure out a way to make the kids feel just as important as our little Tred.

Blogs are GREAT healing tools for a loss. I used BLOG a lot after my dad passed away. It's a great way to journal.

Please know I think of you EVERYDAY! It's definately not easy. And I'm glad your willing to tell people that you feel awefull. You shouldn't need to lie or put on a front. It's perfectly normal feel awefull... and it's expected that you should MOURN.

One thing that is hard to deal with is the feeling that the world continues to go on even when your world feels like it's paused.

Just remember.... TIME HEALS EVERYTHING. YOu will always have a broken piece in your heart for Tred, but you will learn to move on. It just takes time. Don't rush it.

Our prayers are with you, Greg, and the kids.
