When Brian died, the pain was overwhelming. So great, in fact, that my mind built a cushion of shock around my heart, protecting me from the true devastation. Over the past two years, my wise system – my heart, mind, and soul – have slowly worked in tandem, releasing more and more of this loss for me to see. ⁣

So that I can process and integrate and reconcile all the ways Brian’s death has changed me. ⁣

There have been many moments when I want nothing more than for this to all go away. For the grief to disappear. For me to reclaim the carefree, happy, innocence of my pre-loss self. ⁣

But I know that this is impossible. Brian isn’t here in the way he once was and so this grief will remain. It will change, soften, ebb and flow – but it stays in some form with me. Signaling his unimaginable absence. ⁣

I am not who I was. I will never be who I was. I have cared for the person I love most as his body failed him. Through pain and suffering, which I witnessed and at times almost seemed to feel with him. ⁣

There is no going back. ⁣

There is no cure. And to me, that’s okay. Because a cure would mean that this is a disease, which I know that it is not. ⁣

This grief is mine. Not a pathology. It is the most human of human experiences. ⁣

A pure reflection of love. ⁣
⁣💕

Have you ever been made to feel that your grief is a disease?

This is challenging to explain to someone who has never experienced it. Some places that I used to go to with my son hurt too much to revisit... so I avoid them. Some places we used to go to make me feel closer to him so I enjoy going there.
Some people, who I used to be close with, didn’t understand how it wasn’t all or nothing... if being someplace my son and I enjoyed being together hurt too much after he died, why didn’t that apply to all places we’ve been? I couldn’t explain the difference... I still can’t explain the difference and I stopped feeling the need to explain why to these particular people any more.
Did anyone else experience this too?
