It's funny how grief seems to drive some away. Is it because they are scared that they could be in my shoes someday? Being around bereaved parent certainly makes you realize it could easily be them in this nightmare. Or could it be that they do not realize that there is no time frame on grief? Do they not realize I still cry everyday? Do they not realize he is still literally on my mind every minute of every day? Do they not realize that this has changed me forever? Do they not realize I have to find the new me that can move forward with a gaping hole in my heart? And for those who stick with my through my journey, you might find you will love the new me.
