When I almost lost my daughter I posted about it on cm.

Posted by   + Show Post
My daughter was born via emergency c-section because she was in SVT. Initially they didn't think she'd make it through the night. She had sepsis, her blood pressure was plummeting, she had fluid on her lungs, they were unable to keep her heart in a healthy rhythm, and they were worried that she might be disabled if she did make it because her cord was wrapped around her neck twice.
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.

 and to jump and bash on a mom even if she's a stranger to you? i don't get the point of that!

Quoting Momniscient: I agree. Completely. There is no right or wrong' way to handle a tragedy. And I'll add this because I see it every other reply: I don't really care if they are trolls or made up stories sometimes. I will still offer my support and words of compassion because of the ones that are true and it never hurts to err on the side of compassion.
