Invisible

From my journal dated June 11, 2002:

It happened again! I just hate it when people who know us and normally would have said hello pretend they don’t see us. They look right through us or past us as if we are invisible. Do they think we don’t know or notice? It just feels like we pay and pay and pay for the death of our precious son.

What did we do wrong?? Nothing!!! And yet people avoid us. There’s definitely something wrong with this picture!

About Rebecca Carney - One Woman's Perspective

My name is Becky Carney. My husband, Joe, and I have been married for 40 years. We have two living children, Eric (37) and Jenna (32). We lost a baby in utero at 19 weeks in 1987. In 2002, our middle son, Jason (19), and his best friend, Alina (20), were broadsided by a drunk driver who was going at least twice the speed limit. They both died instantly. This blog is written from my perspective as a bereaved parent. I don't claim to know what it's like to walk in anyone else's shoes. Each situation is different; each person is different. Everyone handles grief differently. But if I can create any degree of understanding of what it's like to be a parent who has lost a child, then I have succeeded in my reason for writing this blog.
