Thanks for having me, I hope everyone is well.
My girlfriend had a miscarriage at about 10 weeks on Christmas Eve.
I tried being the tough guy and soldiering on and I thought I was doing ok. Kept myself busy, did the whole 'not show emotion' thing but the last 8-10 weeks have really started to hit hard.
Ive occasionally woke up absolutely drenched in sweat (not even been hot where I sleep), and even worse, i feel really cold towards my girlfriend.
Shes exactly the same as she was before. Very loving, does everything for me, but I just feel a bit emotionless around her. I find it hard to look her in the eye, cuddling feels weird, I havent felt like ive wanted to stay at hers lately, stuff like that.
Shes not done anything wrong, shes been brilliant but shes had stuff going on in her side of her life so ive kinda kept this all to myself until recently.
Its like my mind is numbing the emotional side of myself when im with her. When I see other friends/family, I have no issues.
Is this a normal reaction?
Thanks for any help or response.
Respect to all of you who may be suffering.
