It’s not just me

There was an excellent article about mothering over on Jezebel. Apparently, now that she is a mother, the author has discovered depths of empathy she had never know. I was born with that kind of empathy, and there are times when it has crippled me with depressive episodes.

When I say my heart breaks for people who have suffered the unfathomable and infinite pain of losing a child, it sincerely breaks.
