Hello ladies. I never post here anymore, but something happened today and I just needed somewhere to go and vent. I had to take DSS to CubScouts tonight for this fishing thing and there was a mom I had never seen before. We got to talking and she was saying how lonely her son gets because he only has his older sister. She was saying how they had a middle child who had died and that was why there was such a big gap in their ages. Of course I said how sorry I was for her loss and just listened a bit. I told her how DSS gets lonely too, he doesn't have any sibling, we lost a baby last year. I told her that even though it was a missed m/c it was very hard on us all, especially him. She said "well how far along were you" and I told her 10 weeks. And this woman, says to me..."Oh, mine was full term" in the snottiest most smug tone I've heard in a long time. I couldn't even believe it. I didn't expect some kind of huge hugging tear fest or anything, but I surely didn't expect her to act like that and make it sound like it was nothing. This lady really spoke as if she couldn't believe I mentioned my loss in any comparison to hers. And here I thought we were just having a conversation. Now don't get me wrong...one of the things that I am most grateful for is that I wasn't full term. We saw our baby's heartbeat twice before we found out she was gone and that was bad enough, I can't imagine carrying to full term and going through that. HOWEVER, I don't care if someone told me that they lost a baby when they were 2 days along (you get my point) losing a child is losing a child and it took every ounce of everything I had not to tell her so. I just politely ended the conversation she was obviously having with herself and didn't speak to her again and I don't plan to. It's been 7 months since we lost Kaylie and I think I'm doing really really well. My life is at my new normal and all is going well. Of course I think of her everyday, but I'm healing. I don't know, the most I expected was maybe "I'm sorry for your loss" or even "I'm sure it was hard on him", nothing major, it was just a casual conversation, but it just blew my mind that this lady lost a child and acted as if someone else's loss was nothing. Of all people she should have understood a bit. Sometimes people just really disgust me. Actually, I feel sorry for her though. I'm also grateful that I've moved far enough through my grief to understand that other people have felt similar and I can talk to them, understand their loss and grief, without taking away from it. Freakin ggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, ya know. Thanks for listening. I hope everyone is as well as can be expected.
