Default Grieving a miscarriage.

Hi everyone. This is my first post and I wasn't sure where else to turn, hopefully this will help me.

Back in March of this year I found out I was pregnant. It was a difficult time because it was my first semester in college. I was extremely sick all semester and ended up failing all my classes due to the number of absences I had. In June, I had a miscarriage and I was absolutely devestated. I decided it would be best to get back into a normal routine. My university ended up giving me another chance to raise my GPA above a 2.0 (normally they'll dismiss students with anything lower). Well, instead of college keeping my mind off my miscarriage, my miscarriage has kept me from focusing on my school work. I just don't want to get out of bed anymore. I'm miserable. I cry all the time. I have no where to turn to. My husband just didn't seem to bothered by the miscarriage. Normally, I would talk to a therapist, but I only work part time and unfornuately don't have health insurance. I don't know where to go from here. I feel hopeless, depressed, and lack the motivation to change this. Does anybody have any suggestions? I'm sick of feeling like this. I want to progress in life, but my mind simply won't let me.

Sounds like you're dealing with depression. Have you seen a doctor about how your feeling?

GBDreamer, miscarriage is a very emotional and challenging thing for a lady. Your pain from your circumstances of loss is very real and very capable of causing you all the troubles you are presently experiencing. If you have a school counselor available to you, please go to them for help. They may know of resources that will help you better where you live, and they may be of great support to you directly. If you have a church support group don't be afraid to rely on them. If your school offers a medical clinic, it would not hurt you to go to them and ask for medical help. Also, your program director at school is there to help you. He/she is there to guide you, to understand your needs as a student. Talk with that person, explain your situation including your financial situation that prevents you from seeking medical help. Ask for their support as much as you feel comfortable doing it. They can make a difference in your career success, especially if they understand what is happening in your life. Look online if you are in the USA for support groups in your area- Craig's List has sometimes got that kind of group meeting advertised under the Community section. See if there is a DBSA group in your area, if you need in person depression help. They are sometimes also able to direct you better.


Miscarriage support information:

This looks like a support forum for ladies in your shoes and so far as I can tell it's free- please post if it isn't a good place after all if you try it:

I'm so sorry for your loss. (((Hugs))) My daughter also suffered a miscarrage, and it was a very tramadic for her to go through. She wears a baby ring on a necklace in rememberance of her baby. That brought her a little comfort, but I think too it is very important to find a support group that will also help.
