A year ago today I went for a normal check up and found out something was terribly wrong. 

Like most tragedies, this is something you can't understand until you go through it. This one is especially morbid. It puts thoughts you'd never expect in a mother's head. It's like something out of a gross made up horror story. It changes a person's soul.

I found this blog post, What I Mean When I Say My Daughter Was Stillborn that I really wanted to share with everyone. She describes perfectly how I, and many others who have been through this feel.

"I don’t think that most people understand me when I say that my daughter was stillborn." she starts the post.

"Stillbirth does not just happen. It’s not clean and surgical. Instead, it is messy and active, and it opens a wound whose pain throbs on long past you wish it would. And it changes you."

Whether you know someone who has experienced this and want more understanding of how they feel, or if you have experienced this and want to know you're not alone, you should read this post.
Warning: it's a sad one.
