Y'know I really needed to come here today, poke around, visit all the different forums. I'm glad I came back after putting baby to bed and clicked on "Misc." I'm back at work a bit. Taking care of baby. Trying to keep up with house. Trying to keep up with everything. But I'm not taking such great care of and keeping up with me - and my "stuff" - a lot of which - most of which has to do with my Preeclampsia. And THANK YOU for the reminder - it was not my fault. It has been so long since I had to tell myself that over and over again - but it is time to revisit that mantra b/c somewhere along the recent way I seem to have forgotten that what happened to me was not my fault and was not something I did wrong or failed to do properly. Your post is so good - so spot on - helpful - needed. Thank you. XO

Thank you, Alice, for your beautiful reminder. We've missed you!

And just look at this wonderful discussion you've touched off. Like Caryn, I am honored to work with such an amazing group.

Thanks Alice, Caryn, Audrey, and everyone else for posting these comments.
I met a woman in the local diaper shop yesterday who had a beautiful little girl. She was small, and her Mom and I started talking about preemies, then Pre-E, then HELLP. I haven't met anyone else (other than on the boards) who has been through this, and I was thinking about this post while we were chatting. I think we were both pretty rattled by meeting another HELLP survivor so randomly, and one of the first things that came up was guilt. This woman put a tremendous effort into doing everything right, bedrest, diet, etc, and the one of the first things we talked about was guilt. I feel so incredibly lucky to be part of this community, even though all of us probably wish we didn't meet this way. Thanks again for all that you do.
