    Thanks for this Diana, it covers so much of what I have been going through over the last week and a bit (including the sobbing). The only time I can remember feeling like this in the past was as new parents, everything changes almost overnight, although with months/years of planning the mental shock if less.

    Our son had his birthday party planned and friends invited. He was talking about it almost every day before the schools broke up and then suddenly it all collapsed. We couldn’t keep telling him it would be OK so had to gently break it to him that it wouldn’t be happening (at least not until several months after his Birthday). He is still obviously makes him sad whenever he thinks about it.

    Like you though we are counting our blessings. Life in the suburbs gives you some space to move about, even if you do need to walk off the edge of the path when you see people coming the other way.

      Aw, I hope it helps a bit to know that you’re not alone feeling like this. It’s all so hard, and not anything any of us ever thought we would have to deal with. Hang in there.
