‘You don’t really know how to deal with something unless you experience it, and even then it’s only ever YOUR experience.’
You probably came to this page because you’re grieving or supporting someone who is…
This is blog is about my story, here a little bit about it:
I gave birth to identical twin girls on the 1 September 2011, Ananda Mae and Amya Mirica. With great sadness we had to say good-bye to Amya Mirica on the 3rd September, on her 3rd day of her tiny life.
Just 4,5 months after the tragedy of my daughter’s death, my mother committed suicide. Another wave of grief hit like a tsunami.
During the weeks and months that followed I wasn’t able to talk but I wrote a lot and, even though I’m not a very public person, I felt called to publish these thoughts on my page on Facebook so my friends and family knew a little of what was going on in me.
The response I got was totally unexpected. Most people were touched by what I had to say and how I processed my grief. Many asked me to write more often and publish my work. I’m not there yet and I don’t know if I will ever be there. I know however that I want to support others through my experience, a calling that I had long made my profession, even before this last and most intensive year of my life. You will see why…
In the meantime start reading and commenting. I look forward to reading your thoughts, experiences and please share your story.
All Love, Nathalie
