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.
