Learning to live with my Grief, was truly at the heart of my healing. I know that grieving is unique to everyone. My grief began as a tsunami where I fought hard against it to stop myself from drowning. So I isolated myself, barely only existing enough to breathe my way through the early days, numbed in disbelief and utter despair.
Then came anger towards the medical profession followed by anger at myself and at God. The why’s came – why me, why her, why us, why was she taken so young? The what if’s, if there was a God why did he let this happen, why did he let her suffer so much? What if I had taken her to hospital sooner, what if she had got her transplant. I fell in and out of the stages of grief almost on a daily basis and some days all at once.
