Broken

My heart hurts.

My soul is in pieces

My body is no longer my own.

My uterus is literally a piece of useless anatomy.

.

I am no longer whole.

I am a stranger to myself.

I am exhausted.

I am beaten.

.

For the first time, I feel like it might be best to end this chapter.

I don’t want to continue hurting. In fact, part of me knows that I cannot continue living this way.

If I stop now, I know I will survive. If I have to face another loss, I’m not so certain.

I feel a need to find a way to fully embrace what I do have, rather than focus on what I have lost and what is missing.

.

20141018 - BrokenI am sincerely ready to turn over a new leaf. The problem is, I don’t know which leaf to turn.

I am sick of waiting for an answer. I’m tired of hoping for a better tomorrow.

So I sit here, at a fork in a road, hoping I choose the right path.

I don’t know how to choose the right answer. And I am afraid of the consequences if I choose wrong.

.

I am broken.

.

I need the scars to heal.

I need to feel whole again.

I need to reunite with hope.

I need to find myself, whoever that might be.

  1. Praying that you reunite with hope. A little hope can go along way. Until you do though I will hope for you. I hope you find peace, love, and happiness under which ever leaf you choose.

  7. I’d give anything to sit on my decking with you and give you a hug. Is there someone who you could call and do that with. Just sit, talk if you need to, cry if you need to or just be silent if you need to. I understand. The distress when you feel like all hope is lost is like falling from a lifeboat in the worst storm. Don’t give up. I’ll help you back in to the boat. We’ll all help you back in. Xx

  8. I am so, so sorry you are in such a dark and painful place. My grandfather always used to say ‘everything passes, good and bad’… I know this will pass for you but I don’t know when or how and your grief at this point must be immense. You are not alone.

    • Your grandfather has very wise words – thank you so much for sharing them with me.
      While you are right, in this moment the grief and frustration is immense, I do know that this will pass and with time I will reunite with hope. And given time, we will figure out what our right next stop is.
      Thank you again.

      • He had known a lot of suffering himself and so I always believed him. I have held onto his words in times of my own suffering, when the way forward has seemed so dark and confusing, my only ‘knowing’ being that I wouldn’t always feel that way even if I had no idea how or what would change. I’m glad to hear you are trusting that something will shift, even if you don’t know right know how that shift will come. Hugs.

  9. Uncertainty is one of the most difficult things to go through. Especially when it lasts years. I’m hoping your path will be clear soon. Xoxo

  10. Oh, my dear, hurting friend. I was dreading these days for you and my heart is breaking right along with you. The LP asked how you were doing today (before I saw this post) – a testament to how invested I am in your and DH’s situation seeing as how he has never met either of you – and I have also been thinking of you so much. I don’t have any answers but I know you will do what is right for you. This limbo period and the grieving you have determined to be on your horizon (because costs to cure what’s ailing are far beyond a manageable budget) are the heaviest of heavy burdens to shoulder. Of course your body and spirit have buckled under the load. I haven’t read the other comments yet but I’m hoping you’ve already made inroads to see your counsellor and seek out the supports you will need in coming days. If not Monday will be soon enough to line up some of that. I am just so incredibly sorry that this is so hard. If I can do anything, I am here. I hope you know I mean that. Call me anytime. I love you, my friend.

    • Thank you so much Spirit Baby! And thank LP as well!
      I was able to see my counselor on Thursday (the same day that I wrote this) to talk through some of this, and we have another planned appointment next week. I’m a talker, so talking things through is always valuable for me.
      Thank you so much for your friendship and continued love and support!

  11. I tend to find the in-between times to be the worst. I think you’re in an in-between time, where you feel lost and hopeless, where some doors have closed but no new ones have opened yet. I’ve been thinking of you all week, and I am certain that you will find a way to make yourself feel whole, hopeful, and happy again.

    • Thank you so much for understanding. I think you are right, my struggle right now is that we are existing in an in-between time. Grieving what we’ve lost and what that means for our future, while also sorting out what we want to do next. Eventually we will find the next door to open which will provide hope and happiness. And, for now I have to try to accept that it will take some time. Thank you for helping me remember this. Thank you for your kind support!

  15. So sorry you are dealing with this. Ugh. I am praying you find peace first – and have clarity. Praying God makes it so very clear which leaf to turn, and that you find peace that guides you.
