Ways to help yourself

While for me writing became my way of dealing with my many pain-filled thoughts. Other parents have found creative methods useful. Some have taken up quilting, singing, knitting and many different crafts which give them a focus pre-occupying their minds to some extent while mulling over or discussing with others their emotions; perhaps calling to mind treasured memories. If you go The Compassionate Friends (TCF) see link on this page, you will be able to find out more coping strategies and join a forum with like-minded people. They will be able to help you find how you can discover hidden talents that you can use to help you.
Occupying yourself in these ways does not mean you are forgetting your child this will never happen what they do is give our minds some much needed respite from the endless turmoil churning inside our heads.
