There are posts that we write here on your favorite news hub, Ghsplash.com that travel like wildfire. In the course of a day or two we see the reach on social media climb, people commenting, sharing and resharing. We love it, because it reminds us that grievers want to help other grievers. They want to share help and support and let others know they are not alone. Color us a pessimist, but I have a strong feeling that today’s post will NOT be one of those posts. I have that feeling despite the fact that today’s post topic touches over a million women in the US every year. Why? Because unfortunately today’s topic is one that is so entrenched in politics and rhetoric that as a society we are often scared to utter the word, to talk about the experience, to acknowledge the emotions, to support one another. Our fear that even a mention of the A-word will bring an onslaught of comments, attacks and hurt feelings keeps even helping professionals quiet, to the detriment of those who silently suffer.
