I’ll never forget the confusion I felt after my second miscarriage.

Words that were meant to comfort me rang hollow in my ears. Some of the just annoyed me, and even hurt deeply.

Sometimes what people say to comfort us in our grief actually ends up hurting or annoying us. Here is how to respond when comforting words hurt.


My real name is Debra (Debbie Sue). Sarah is a nickname given to me in high school. My husband has always called me that so here in Florida It's all I am known by. I was born and raised in Illinois. My son and I moved to Colorado in 1982. I taught school for 17 years. Then I ran a homeschooling/preschool/daycare until 2006 when I moved to Florida after my son, Bobby died suddenly. He was almost 26. Danny and I live and work at a state park here. I miss the mountains and climate of Colorado. I miss snow and the four seasons. I miss Bobby.
