Cancel or Easy Button

I think there should be something like a generic 'Cancel' or 'Easy' button for when you have experienced a loss like this.  The button should work for things like:  Stopping the samples you get in the mail, stop the coupons, stop the catalogs, stop the e-mails, and stop the stupid advertisements that pop up EVERYWHERE, etc.  Instead, you have unsubscribe from EVERYTHING, and then still have to deal with getting crap in the mail that just makes your stomach turn.

We got the first of probably many things I have signed up for in the mail.  We got sample cans of Similac.  I wasn't entirely sure if I was going to breast feed (was pretty much leaning towards not doing it), so I signed up for Enfamil and Similac samples.  I guess I forgot to un-sign myself up for it though. 

I just need to make it through the next 25 days.  Bailey's due date is August 27th.  25 days...will it get easier after that point?  Maybe just a little bit?

it does get easier on the seeing pregnant side of things...but now you will see babies that are the age she should be. and YES those things in the mail KILLED me!!! It was like a punch in the gut each time I went to the mail box. We moved after Trent died...I just needed to be somewhere else...so those mailings have stopped and I have gotten off MOST of the email lists...some just will not remove me!

I constantly feel like I am wishing my days away...always trying to reach a point where the pain won't be as strong. I really hope that sweet Bailey's due date might bring you to a new place in your healing process. (((hugs)))

I will hope it gets easier...just can't guarantee anything when the triggers tend to be everywhere. Sending you lots of good thoughts in the next 25 days...

My names Jennifer, and I can tell you that yes with time it does get a little easier to bear. Its never easy but the burden lightens with each passing day. We just celebrated my son, Bryston's 1st Heavenly Birthday, and I can tell you that some days are harder than others. You just have to ride that roller coaste of emotions. On my son's E.D.D I spent the day doing anything that I could to remember him. I wrote him a letter, I went through his things, I visited his gravesite, and I even painted blue birds on my toes(Sparrows remind me of him) I'll be thinking of you! *HUGS*

I hope that the passing of the due dates makes things easier but I actually fear it will make things worse. After the due date there should be a little baby. Right now I am missing the pregnancy but post September 18th I will be missing a child.

I wish you find peace and comfort in remembering Bailey this month. I hope time will heal all of us, there is no way to know, we can only hope. Sending you hugs!

Those baby-related junk mails are like knives in our hearts. I wish there's some way to make it easier for BLMs to stop them from coming in our mailboxes. We just don't need these painful reminders.

I hope this month would be gentle on you. (((hugs)))

I hate getting surprises like that. It's another pointed reminder just how abnormal you are - after all, society tells us that being pregnant = living baby. Sadly, we know that being pregnant is no guarantee.

I'm sorry you're getting junk like that when you have an anniversary coming up. I wish there was some way I could make all that stuff go away.

Please know I'm thinking of you...
