Going back to work…
What you expect: Being grateful for being so busy you can’t think too much about the loss.
What you don’t expect: Having people ask if you’re feeling better (thinking you were out sick). The punch it throws every time they ask that, and every time you have to respond “yeah, mostly.” Because in reality you aren’t better. You’re still stuck, wondering what just happened, it still hurts. Physically you’re mostly okay, but mentally… it’s not okay and here you are lying. Lying because it’s so much easier than having a conversation explaining to people that you were pregnant and now are not.
