In my head

1. The rain.  It won't stop raining.  It's supposed to storm daily for the next week.  The dark skies, the rain, the memories of last May.  I can't escape, I'm struggling to cope.  The anxiety is horrible.  I want to go hide and cry and cry and cry.  It's hard to explain, but I feel almost frozen, trapped in my fear.  I don't know that anyone gets it.

2. I wish my kids were alive.  My heart is hurting.  A year ago, my hopes, my dreams, my thoughts.  I wish they were a physical part of my family, not just an emotional one.  I'm doing the best I can.  I'm trying to embrace it.  I'm making the most of it, but there's a hole.  I miss them. I want them.  I think about them every single day.

3. I want to have another baby.  I want to be pregnant again, to bring home another living child.  To have the hopes and dreams that come with another baby.  I want it so bad.  I have to accept it probably won't happen.  Some days I think I can, some days I don't.  I'm scared it's going to fail.  I'm scared that it won't work.  I love Katie and I'm glad she's here.  I'm so incredibly lucky to be her mom.  I just want her to grow up with a sibling.  I want her to fight, argue, play, just experience life with a sibling.  I want the experience of raising more than ones, the challenges and the good parts.  I want all of it.

I'm having a hard time.  My days lately switch between 3 and 4.  I have counseling today and we'll see what we talk about.  I only get an hour and sometimes I feel like I freeze when I get there and forget everything.  I feel stupid, like everything on my mind is so insignificant and doesn't matter.

I have no one to really talk to right now, I know everyone is busy or sick of it.  So I post here.  No one has to read this either.
