Lately I’m having to deal with unresolved feelings about the loss of my babies. Although I lost them over a year ago and I have had a baby 7 months ago, I’m still having days where I feel incomplete and depressed and when I look at my baby I feel a mixture of love and grief. I feel like I can’t talk to anyone about it because half of the time I’m just written off and my feelings pushed aside. I’m not sure how much longer I can handle these thoughts or emotions before I crack and leave my husband or burn bridges with all of my friends. At the same time I feel like it’s just my postpartum making me feel this way and yet still the group of friends and family I have often make me feel like I can ignore these feelings and that they will just go away on their own. I haven’t told some of them that I haven’t come to terms with both losses of my unborn children, or that my depression is what makes me not want to be around them most of the time, and I haven’t done this because of other friends and family members that tell me to suck it up or that it’s all in my head and that nothing is wrong with me. I think those things being said to me is making it all worse but because of my group of friends being so small already I feel that if I say something I’ll lose all of my friends and even though I don’t want to see people from time to time it doesn’t mean I don’t want them there later when I do have good days, as sparse as they may be.

Miscarriage is very sad and very traumatic. It is a real loss of real child and is worthy of grief. The fact that you have a baby and are feeling this way could very well be postpartum depression and when you couple that to the grief of miscarriage, you have been given a "double whammy" to deal with. This is real and cannot just be pushed aside. I know this is true. I have had multiple miscarriages and needed time to recover from my grief. Have you ever considered counseling? I just saw an article this morning that was discussing how to know if you need to talk to a professional. Here is the web address in case you care to look at it:

I will be praying for your healing and for you to be comforted. God bless.
