Not sure why, but this post is showing up weird, so you may have to decipher it some.
Last night I was still feeling sorry for myself. A few more Facebook friends announced that they were expecting and 2 posted pics of their newborn babies.
So I posted: How many more people are going to announce their pregnancies and births before I get my chance? Life sucks right now............ I know I sound like a broken record. It went something like that and all i was needing were some hugs and I'm sorry's nothing big. But what I got was this message:
"So basically you're saying that people should just stop sharing their happy news because a few people may be offended? That's not fair. They aren't intentionally rubbing it in anyone's face. Facebook is about sharing news with family and friends, you have to take the good with the bad. No one means to be offensive, life just goes on."
Well my question to you is: Does life go on? How many of you have just said oh well life goes on? Well I sure as heck haven't and I'm pretty sure none of you have either. So I commented back trying to still be the bigger person and explained that our hearts were broken, so not only are we trying to find all the pieces but our would has stopped completely.
She then preceded to tell me that she knows pain because she has a special needs child. We all have our trials and it is our choice how we want to deal with them. I again responded letting her know that I too have a special needs child and we have decided to treat her like a normal child, but this is nothing like that.
Anyway long story short. If you can't say something nice especially to a grieving parent don't say nothing at all.
I am always so happy for the parents that are expecting and I thank GOD every time a baby is born to this world healthy, but that does not change my pain and I need FB support just the same as expecting parents want congratulations.
