I think it different with each person. I lost my daughter last year at age 3. For me, talking about her with others help me out. My husband, he is the quiet one, he deal by himself. He dont talk about it with others, he keep it to himself. I also cry a lot. I dont want to keep inside of me because it going to built up and Im not able to handle it.

I'm sorry to hear about your daughter. Do you mind sharing it here about what happened to her?? Crying is always good.. cos it's letting it go from your system.. give yourself time to grieve and it's ok not to be ok.. cos you need that =)

My daughter was born with SOD. We couldnt find out until my 8th month pregnany. At first doctors told us that we probably only have week with her but she gave us 3 years. Part of her brain was missing so I with her 24/7. I didnt let anyone keep her except for like 2 hours. Doctors think she had stroke or something while I was pregnant with her but they are not sure. She was never to roll over, hear, talk, eat and do anything but she roll over, she called me and my husband, she loved the music, and even though Im not supposed to but I did feed her from mouth few times. Sweet potates is her favorite. Anyways, one day, she just got sick and by the time we transfer to the bigger hospital by helicopter, it was too late. My nephew saw my daughter standing by the corner of the room the day we had her viewing. So she already was doing things she couldnt do here so I was happy for her. I just hate to miss all the good things she get to do now.

Time is a great healer. But for it to do its work i think people need to be able to let go. How people let go, it all depends on the individual. There are no right or wrong ways and each person would have varying ways to let go. Accept, let go and let time do the rest :)

Time definitely plays a part in the healing process.. i think friends and familiy will also play a big part in it.. being surrounded by people who loves and care for you makes a whole lot of difference =)
