Those dear women looked at each other for a moment, and simultaneously burst out laughing. They giggled as though this were the funniest joke they had ever heard.
But this is my world. Those were the cards I had been dealt. I have been living without my Mum for 14 months now. I have been doing okay.
Who do you trust to listen to you and your loss?
I think part of my university experience has been trying to find that for myself. To have a moment of deep pride in my accomplishments.
I hated vulnerability so much, that I tried to give myself everything I could to the point of burnout.
What is Secondary Loss?
I cannot wait to be Evee in my new life, and for Katie to be Katie in hers. I am ready for it now.
I think as a young person who has lost their mum, I am quite tired of being scared of everything.
We are truly exhausted physically, but mentally, we are stronger and happier than ever.
It was a downward spiral of pain, and the very essence of mum singed and burnt my soul with that deep sense of loss.
