Day 5. Empty #MWAH2017

Today’s prompt is Empty.

Feeling empty was something that I seriously struggled with after my miscarriage. I fell hollow useless and like someone had cut out my heart.

I slept with a pillow held tight to my stomach for months to try to fill the void. It was the only way I could get to sleep.

Nothing would fill the void for a long time. I ate a lot of comfort food, tried to wear clothes that hid my body because I couldn’t bear to look at it. 

It has got better, I can sleep at night and feel a lot better about myself, but there is still quite an empty feeling. 

I have struggled with it’s recurrence, especially this month as I was supposed to be in my final month this month. My due date should have been the 22nd of June. 

However, it is getting better, slowly at least. Although I don’t expect that the empty arms is every truely going to be better. They will always be missed. 

Love and support always,
