Compassionate Friends

A friend whose child had also died took me to a meeting of The Compassionate Friends tonight. It was difficult but good for me to listen to other stories.

I read an interesting quote from Jenifer Estess, a lady with ALS, who died last December, and was bedridden before that. She said, "Everyone has a Why Me? Mine was just worse than most."

Everyone at the meeting had a why me story to tell. I felt so numb still, being there. I couldn't cry. I feel detached from things. I just keep moving no matter what. I want to feel more.
