Crying Heart – #griefheart number 38

Crying Heart

The shower is the best place to cry. The good news is that I don’t cry everyday in the shower like I once did.

Sometimes I just have nice memories in the shower. But when I really want to let loose, I do it here most of the time. It might hurt like crazy but I let it all hang out and it feels good to do so. I often feel better after. You moms who’ve lost a child know what I mean, don’t you? The car and the shower.

What is the #griefheart project?

  1. The car….definitely. I don’t cry everyday anymore. But, when I’m alone in the car, I cry. My son attempted suicide on Sunday, January 5th 2014. I am fortunate that my son survived. However, it is incredibly hard to understand why our love for him was not enough. I still struggle with this. A classmate of his took his life in September of 2013. I see his mom in church and I just want to cling to her. We share something. I’m glad I found this blog. It helps to read about people who share some of the same struggles.

  2. Just stumbled upon this…lost my beautiful angel, Shelby, at the age of 19, in an horrific auto accident, on 9/2/15. Shower and car, YES! I feel like I found a very good place.

  3. Yes! The shower is where I scream and wail.And the car,especially when Wake me up when September comes on the radio. It was his favorite song.It’s a comfort, to have someone understand
