The fog here recently reminds me of those early days of grief when I couldn't see, or think, clearly. I have heard many bereaved parents talk of a "fog" when their baby first dies. I suppose it's some sort of protective mechanism, not allowing us to see too far ahead, to see too clearly. I think if I could have seen further on, to understand better what a burden the loss of our boy would mean, it probably wouldn't have helped me.

I still in many ways feel to be in the "early days of grief".  I haven't been taken back to those same feelings - thank goodness for that - just thoughts of those days.
