Jim and I started attending a grief support group last week. It meets every week for 12 weeks. It is a little awkward being in a room of grieving strangers. We are the only ones that have lost a child. People have lost parents, siblings, and spouses. I know we have been advised to do this, but so far Jim and I have to drag ourselves to go. We are being quiet and listening to the other people. Even in grief, I feel miles away from the people in our group.
I am making baby steps towards becoming productive again. Yesterday I framed pictures of our kids and hung them up in Robbie’s room, which is being converted into my office/ Sloth Sanctuary. I completed a 40 hour advanced autism training this summer, as I get ready to teach Autism again in a couple weeks.
