Day 11 of Capture Your Grief (in memory of Freddie Leigh Bromley) and the subject title today is ‘Triggers‘.
What isn’t a trigger? They are everywhere. Things I see, things I hear, places I go, places I can’t go………Some triggers bring back happy memories which then make me sad. Some just make me sad. They are constant little reminders that something went wrong, something is missing and I am the odd one out.
Where do I belong? I miss going into shops for baby items and I can’t attend baby classes. It’s like I’m not allowed or valid anymore. I don’t belong and I can’t join in.
I am part of a different club now. A club nobody wants to join. A club where only the odd ones out join.
We never belong here, just learn to live here.
