TWhittle Posted June 19, 2006 Report Share Posted June 19, 2006 Not sure where to start, but I lost my 22 year old daughter 7 weeks ago this past Saturday. I still feel like I am walking around in a dream world. She gave birth to a beautiful baby girl on April 27, 2006 and died early morning April 29th. She died unexpectedly of a pulmonary embolism. She left behind an infant and a very young husband. I guess my question is, has anyone else suffered a loss like this and is it normal to walk around thinking its not real that its just a bad dream. I honestly don't think I have even begun the grieving process. I have shed tears, but not the way that I thought it would happen when you lose a child. Everyone one else in my family fell apart in the beginning, but I have some how held it all together. I am very frightened that it is going to hit me hard one day when I least expect it. When I think of her I can actually feel this wall come up, I guess to protect me from those feelings. It's like I just can't feel anything yet. It's hard to talk about this with anyone, because I just don't feel they understand. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
