Is there life after death? No, not in the supernatural sense, but is there life after death for the bereaved? How do you go on after burying your child? Compassion can be on short supply, even more so if the death was from a drug related overdose. How to you make sense of it. How does one get past the regret and guilt?
Don’t even get me started on how to survive holidays. I never really understood just how hard that would be. Does it get easier? Nope. I don’t think it does. I think we just get better at coping, better at putting on a smile and saying, “sure, I am ok!”….Liar, that’s what I am now. Pretty darn good liar. If you are still with me,then you probably “get it.”
There is hope, there is always glorious, wonderful hope. Let’s take the journey together.
