People occasionally asking, "Is it getting easier yet?" Finding myself wondering what that even means. Easier? Implying less difficult, less pain, less discomfort. Unsure how to answer. What are we measuring? Eight months into grieving the loss of a child. The phrase WTF still surfacing many times a day. Not experiencing a single wakeful hour without thinking of him. Of them. An improvement over every few minutes. Does this qualify? Overall, understanding the question to be a form of caring. Wondering how things are going. Innocently asking. Truthfully answering, "As well as can be expected".
