Re: How do you react to a loss?

Home Forums Writer’s Digest Forum Take it Outside! How do you react to a loss? Re: How do you react to a loss?



This is a really hard topic to post. I’ve debated about “how to” or “if I should”. I guess the “why I should” comes from being in a state of mental limbo. 

Maybe getting some input from you guys might help.

My daughter in law had a miscarriage. Usually I have no problem with stating my feelings, but I’ve never been to this place.

My son is much like his father, seems to be handling it pretty well. I’m okay for a while till something sets me off, a butterfly when I was gardening.

I guess what I’m trying to figure out is what do I say? what do I do for her for him?

I’m treading carefully, I don’t want to cause more pain, it’s the Holiday season yadda, yadda. But, don’t want to ignore the loss.
