Grieving

Excerpts from tonight's Grey's Anatomy (so true, so profound, so close to home):

"Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone."

"The thing we all have to remember is that it can turn on a dime."

"When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's when you survive."

"Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way."

"The very worst part of grief is that you can't control it."

"The best we can do is to let ourselves feel it when it comes, and let it go when we can."

"The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again."

"And always, every time, it starts all over again."
Denial. Anger. Bargaining. Depression. Acceptance.

You took the post right out of my mouth! I was wishing I had a pen/paper handy while watching last night....

Thank you for sharing.

Same here, I was frantically trying to type all of the quotes down they were indeed so profound and hit so close to home.

Thank you so much for sharing these with us.

Wow, those quotes very accurately depict what I've learned to expect in the month since the grieving process began for me (I lost my baby girl on 8/28/09 due to kidney issues which led to no amniotic fluid which led to no lung development. I was induced at 34 weeks because they thought she'd have a better chance outside the womb. They were wrong).

Btw, I found your blog through the LFCA blogs. I was just browsing today, trying to find other people who have been through similar situations. I'm very sorry for the loss of Dylan.

Wow. That is all I can say.

This one I find to be the worst part of grief... These are all so very true. Thank you for sharing.
