I know I shouldn't think of things like this bc there's no point. All I can do is my best to protect my child, and all it does is scare me so much that I can hardly breathe. However, occasionally I'll think of "what if" something happened to my son. It seriously terrifies me. I honestly would not want to live without him. Losing him is unimaginable. I know I'd be absolutely grief-stricken if I lost the other people who are closest to me, but now that I have a child, it's on an entirely different level.When I hear stories of kids with cancer, kids who are kidnapped, and kids who pass away, I can hardly handle it. I feel so vulnerable. I love him so much...more than I ever thought you could love a person. It's amazing to love him so much, but I feel like now my life and happiness lies within this little person and his well-being.
Anyways, does anyone else think like this? I try not to, but when I hear of other people who have lost their kids, I'm gripped with fear at the thought of something happening to my own child.
My mom always told me that when I had a child, I'd love them more than I ever could have imagined, and she was so right. But with that comes such vulnerability.
