My brother passed away in July. He was killed in Iraq by "friendly fire" in his barrocks on a USAF base.
I thought I was doing better, not worring so much about losing the baby now that I'm in my 2nd tri but a few days ago I had a visit from the main prosecuter in the case who allowed me to read statements of what happened that day, even from the soldier who shot him... I also got to read the autopsy report. I think I'll be forever haunted by their words.
Lately I haven't been able to sleep, something that I need to take advantage of before little squirt gets here. Everytime I wake up I can't fall back asleep because all I can do is cry. I'm so angry at what happened and even more angry that he was left alone after being shot in the chest (the bullet punctured both lungs and his heart), he never had a chance...
How have other pregnant mothers delt with this without depression or sleeping medicine?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
