Silence and Heartbreak

April 24, 2019 at 12:06 am 1 comment

Many years ago, when C was in second grade, I experienced the single most traumatic event as his parent – even to this day. This is saying a lot, given his birth could not have been much more dramatic than it was, or all that’s occurred in the last several years. Even now, all these years later, I can still conjure up the pain of that day in vivid detail. It taught me a valuable lesson, however, about silence, trauma, and what it really means to be a Mama Bear. Moreover, when looking back on it, I am reminded that despite all of the frustration I have felt over the years at being the person who gives C the most while being the biggest recipient of his anger and despair, I would do anything for this kid. I might screw it up completely, but I’ll go to the ends of the earth to help him. If that isn’t being a Mother, I don’t know what is.

You can read about that day here. Be warned, it is a bit longer than usual, and perhaps a bit more painful. But silent? Never again.
