I checked my blog traffic today and found that I've been getting lots of hits lately from an online TFMR (Termination for Medical Reasons) support group because someone posted a link to my blog! I am so happy to see that and would like to give a shout out to any TFMR mamas who happen to stumble across this blog, be it now or many many months from now.
I use this little corner of the interwebs as my sounding board in a (sometimes futile) attempt to keep myself sane but I also operate under the partial delusion that writing about all of this stuff may be helping someone else (or potentially could
help someone some day). I sincerely hope that is the case and so I
wish I had some sort of sage advice to share with you, but I don't. I've just
been fumbling through this storm blindly and attempting to put words to
the emotions while I try not to crack.
I also wish I was
strong enough to speak out about TFMR; to fully come out and fight the good fight by sharing who I am and what I've been through without hiding behind my blogger name. But
I'm not. Not yet anyway. I really look up to the women who can be
completely transparent about their stories (like on 1in10blog or UnspokenGrief) and while I think it's important to tell your story, I'm just not there yet.
So, I'll continue to write my little blog and hope that something I
say resonates with someone else.
So welcome TFMR mamas and check out the "Help through a loss (TFMR)" tab at the top! I hate that any of us has to go through this but at least we're not totally alone.
Feel free to comment anytime!
