They lost their homes and I only lost groceries...

   I feel so awful for those who were affected by these tornadoes and lost their homes! We have been without power for over a week and a half now, we're staying at a hotel. I'm distraught because of all the breast milk and frozen groceries I lost in the deep freezer and the fridge. I had over 50 5oz bags of breast milk saved up for my dd. I am losing milk production and stocked up while I had the ability to pump that much. We had so much in the deep freezer and it's all gone, EVERYTHING! And I'm nearly losing it! I can't even image how those who lost everything feel! My heart goes out to all of them, but I still feel pretty broken up about losing all that breast milk and all of our cold storage foods.

Just because others have afflictions doesnt mean yours arent important.

Very well said! I am sorry for your losses op. I can understand how distressing that would be.

You're allowed to be upset, too. There are no contests where the person who has it the worst wins, and is the only one allowed to be concerned with their loss.

 everyone has problems just because yours are smaller doesn't stop them from being problems.

One person's greater injury doesn't lessen your smaller one.

That sucks.  Can you pump more? (sorry I never bf not sure how it works)
