an incomplete miscarriage story

Cross-posting, because there just isn't a lot on the topic. Because this is the kind of narrative I've been seeking these past few weeks, and it's been hard to find, and because someone else might need these words sometime later. My long-time readers, of which there may be exactly none here at VP, will know that I've lived for years with body dysphoria and bipolar disorder, and that I've spent the past year in an accelerated nursing program. These influence the story. Later, I may write more on these, and on the graphic details; I need to work through the raw loss first. Baby steps. Slow, slow baby steps.

Please don't blow up my inbox with condolences, or with concerns about my substance use. It really does help to know that loving concerned people are reading and are sending their love and concern. That said, I just don't have the energy to wade through piles of notifications right now. If you need to talk about your own miscarriage, please DO feel welcome to comment or to PM me -- even if you're seeing this years later. Like I said, there's not a lot out there. Mostly empty facts and quiet shame, neither of which help in the long run. (I can't recommend an accelerated BSN program, btw. I'm willing to talk about that special trauma, too.)

VP mods, if you're still out there, please tag "miscarriage" and "mental health".
