I sadly had a miscarriage in 2007 and my life has never been the same again.

I sadly had a miscarriage in 2007 and my life has never been the same again. Some people says it gets easier in time but that hasn't happened for me yet, there is still a giant hole in my life.
The dad found it so hard to deal with my grief and his own that he left me.
I've slowly moved on from him but the baby is still on my mind. I've got a great partner now who I love, but it is just this giant loss that has affected me badly. I'm scared of pushing him away like I did before, please tell me this gets easier. I know it sounds like depression but I've never tried to kill myself or anything. I just try to work hard to block it out. Could do with a talk with someone who has experienced a miscarriage.

Editor's Comment

It is hard to come to terms with the grief and loss of miscarriage and sometimes in our culture it is not something that is acknowledged. If you feel that you have been unable to move on from your miscarriage there may be unresolved grief that you need help to release. Help is available and I agree with you that talking to someone would help, for miscarriage support. There is also an organisation which offers online help and forums where you can talk to people who have had a miscarriage for miscarriage support
