Title: Wish you were here
Post by: DandHsMum on March 05, 2010, 21:01:56 pm
Tracy, I so wish you were here.  I am feeling so desolate right now and don't know how to keep going when I am so tired and my DH and DS are so stressed out too.  I really wanted this to be a special time, set apart from the experience of our first child.  I wanted to feel the joy instead of the desperation.  I wanted to be able to see past the sleep deprivation to the wonder of it all.

I think about the people who had you in their homes and had your loving care and experience and I envy them.  I wish I had that support too.

Thank you for your legacy.  Thank you for you gift.  Oh that I had it too.

Thanks ladies. xxoo

Forgive me for the overindulgent self-pity.  Feeling on a very low ebb today and feeling like I have nowhere to turn.  We have all been there - things can seem insomountable and helpless when you are just not getting any sleep.

Not trying to be dramatic - its just that I have been up most of the night thinking of Tracy and wishing that I had her support to help me through this time.  I am grateful for the BW books and I know that that was Tracy's way of being there for all of us, I just need time without a sqwarking baby to be able to read them.

I appreciate your hugs so very much.  Thank you for taking the time to care  :-*

I know exactly how you are feeling and, though I am sorry that you are having such a rough time, was happy to see that I am not alone in how I am feeling.  I am so overtired and overwhelmed that I sometimes feel like I am completely breaking down.  I found Tracy's books just in time and can't help but want her here with me when I read them.  I feel so lost and clueless and just want to do what is best for my sweet, sweet little DD!  I know it sounds silly, but I feel so jealous of the families that got visits from Tracy to help them out personally - I feel like that is exactly what I need to get my life back on track.... a personal visit from someone who knows what they are doing because I certainly don't!!!!  I just recently learned that she had passed and was devestated.
Hugs to you DandH'sMum - I am here if you need to talk!!
This board has been a blessing and I pray that you all don't get sick of my random clueless posts full or question after question!

Thank you all!!

Thanks to Kimberley and all the other supportive Mums on here - I was worried that I would appear over dramatic, but there are many times that I really, REALLY struggle.  I have no real support and can't help but feel sorry for myself sometimes.  Knowing that someone cares and understands, means a lot so thank you for your empathy and understanding.  Hugs to all of you out there, and I'm there for you too!  xxooxxoo
