When I almost lost my daughter I posted about it on cm.
I didn't get to see her for twelve hours because she was in such bad shape and the drugs they had to give me made me incredibly sick. I was freaking out. But I had to be strong. For my husband, my family, her sister, and for her. I couldn't fall apart like I wanted to. And so while we waited to find out whether my baby would live or not I came on here. I was able to vent and voice my fears to people who weren't involved in the situation. I was able to get prayers and positive words from the ladies on here, and it helped get me through those first four days until she stabilized enough that the doctors could tell me that she'd most likely make it.
So maybe you wouldn't choose to post on here if you were in a situation like mine, or a horrifically tragic situation like I've seen some ladies post about on here, but that doesn't make them liars. And them choosing to open up on here is not wrong.
