We were hanging out with friends this weekend and they mentioned first and foremost how sorry they were that we had miscarried. The tears started falling down my cheeks and Dean said, “She’s still taking it pretty hard.” Honestly, I can’t imagine there will be a time when I hear the words or think about it and I’ll be fine. I don’t think I’ll ever get over it. Yes, maybe it will be less raw, but it will still hurt.
How to Help After a Miscarriage:
While it may be uncomfortable because I do start crying a little, I really appreciated that they brought it up. I’m always grateful when the loss is acknowledged versus ignoring it.
So many people came to our aid—the list would be long. But I want to recognize the Burning Man Art Department who showed me they loved me by immediately sending a beautiful bouquet of flowers. And also my friend Patricia and her family who sent this treasured gift.
I want to excerpt some information from the profile. “Jizo Bodhisattva (or saint) represents the wisdom of the earth manifesting as the energy of compassion towards those who are vulnerable. He is known as both male and female. She helps those on spiritual or physical journeys—people who experience impossible obstacles and feel at life’s crossroads. Jizo also carries the wish-fulfilling, protecting jewel of Truth whose light banishes all fear.”
