Oh my goodness, just when you think you’ve heard it all…
I had a husband of a not-so-close friend* tell me that he was sorry to hear that I miscarried, but that his wife (my not-so-close friend) said she thought I was ‘used to it by now’.
I pretty much choked on the bite of pasta salad in my mouth and said ‘no, you don’t really ever get ‘used to’ your babies dying’ and got up and walked out to the bathroom. And texted my husband from the bathroom, telling him that I would be sitting in the car for the rest of the party or until he could get his behind out to the car. We left 5 minutes later. Now I’m home and still shaking.
Is that really what people feel for those of us who have Recurrent Pregnancy Loss? That it’s like working out and the first time makes you really sore, but it gets easier/better each time? Seriously?!
Stupid people SUCK.
*She only knows my history because she’s in my mom’s group and a mutual friend told her. She is not someone who I would ever have shared my story with, which I guess makes this worse.
