Wipe Out

This was so perfect for me to read this morning.  
From a Face book post by "Silent Grief - Child Loss Support".  Definitely explains my feelings of complete wipe out today.  

'Following a major holiday such as Mother's Day, a parent of child loss will often feel like there is no energy to even get dressed much less navigate through the day. Doctors will tell us that one day of grieving takes the same amount of energy as it would to work for 8 solid hours in a field with a pick and shovel in the blazing, hot sun. Grief depletes us of our physical and emotional energy, that's why it's so very important to rest and drink lots of fluids following a day of hard grieving. God bless every parent, grandparent, sibling, and family member grieving the loss of a child today. Please take care and try to understand how much stress your body and mind go through when grieving the loss of your child. Nothing at all is easy about child loss!'

For all of you like me today, feeling the wipe out... you aren't alone. 

I go at 1:00 for my procedure... not the best day for it to happen, but just ready to get it over with.  Maybe I'll be so exhausted from yesterday... that it won't be so bad! :)

Godspeed to all of you today feeling like you have worked 8 hours with a pick and shovel.

I plan on hitting today head on.....

Thinking of you <3! You are so wonderful to share and encourage others... I see this frequently with my close friends who have lost a child and am always trying to support/encourage them in not feeling (as) guilty when they are physically spent after being so emotionally spent, and needing to take time rest. I just hopped over to apologize profusely that the check that was returned has been misplaced. Hopefully, I can get a new one out to you ASAP if you still have the P.O. Box open. I hope everything went well with the procedure and please know you are in my thoughts.
