Wishing you courage

"Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying 'I will try again tomorrow'."

October 15th photos
A flame for each of our missing babies.  I think I can name more missing babies than living ones.  This makes sense because the living ones don't stay babies for forever.




May we all find peace.

..........

I'm treating myself gently right now.  Taking days off work here and there to make sure there is time for remembrance, reflection, and rest.

.........

Also trying out a new antidepressant and while it's only been three days, here is my report so far: the brain chatter that was loud and constant is practically gone.  It's weird but it would be pretty nice if it would stay that way, but it will be very not-nice if extreme forgetfulness accompanies the quiet.  Something to watch for.  The worst thing so far is not being able to sleep for more than an hour at a time.

........

It's been a wonderful few days where it feels like things are going to be ok :)

I am glad you are feeling better - sadly I know far more people my age (through blogs) that have angel babies than any people with living ones. Crazy. I hope that you get more sleep soon <3 (((hugs))) <3

Beautiful photos, and sadly, I too know the names of more missing babies than living babies.

Beautiful photographs and, as many of the previous comments have said, I also know the names of missing babies than living ones.

Glad that the new antidepressants are an improvement in some regards. Hope the sleep has evened out.
