A blog about the grief after losing a child to Niemann Pick, Type C, a rare disease, and how I'm moving forward with my life.

Get Over It

Thankfully I have never actually heard the words "Get over it".  There have been many people, by their actions, who have made me feel like I should be "over it".

Well, here's the news flash - there is no "getting over" the loss of a child.

I read a great article about "getting over it" the other day.  I encourage everyone, especially those who have never lost someone close to them, to read this article.

The loss of a parent is similar to the loss of a child.  There is one significant difference - a parent had a lifetime of experiences - including going to school, getting married, having kids, etc.  Losing a child also means losing all those experiences.  It's a very different grief process, one that you never "get over".
