Since we lost our daughter in january i have felt the need to buy things. Things that represent her, or that remind me of her, or that apply to losing someone. Or even things that she may have liked. IDK if this is because i can never give her anything or im trying to make up for the fact of not having her here. Idk.. maybe its just im trying to fill a void idk.. my husband tells me to stop and i do for a bit, and then i find something else that reminds me of her and i have to have it... idk.. we just ordered her headstone, so maybe when we get that completely done and at the cemetary maybe ill feel more settled.. idk just a lil vent i guess..

My grandfather died last week, and I've found myself buying things for LO that I KNOW my grandfather would love (he was obsessed with Mickey Mouse).

I think it's normal. :( I'm so sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry, Mama. I don't have an answer for you... have you talked to anyone about this (other than your hubs)? Have you had any form of closure?

First let me say, I am SO SO very sorry for your loss & I could never imagine. I just read your profile & teared up a bit... Do the DR's have a reason for what happened?

Not alone on that one mama...!



After our son passed away i bought bracelets, necklaces, picture frames, books, scrapbook stuff out the wa-hoo, figurines... I used to e-window shop pretty much every day because you can always justify one more thing.



It will pass, no worries, just ask your hubby to be patient! Maybe start a little artsy project so you have something to concentrate on and take time away from the shopping?
