I have no words.
Correction, I have lots of words, but there are so many and they are flying around so furiously in my head that I cannot put them together. I feel like I'm running around with a butterfly net trying to catch these words to put them into some kind of intelligble order so I can tell my story. The only thing I can muster the sense to say is that I am heartbroken. Heart. Broken. Hurt. Hurting.
I'm so hurt that I want to throw up. My head feels like exploding. My heart is as heavy as a pile of bricks. My hands are shaking. My eyes sting with the remains of dried tears. Even days after I am still reeling.
How can someone say such awful things? Such hurtful things. Say such things with no regard, with no empathy, with no consequence. How does one say things in the name of trying to get your attention? Since when did getting someone's attention make horrible accusations excusable? Things were said that no mother (or father) wants to hear. That no mother (or father) should have to hear.
Why did you even adopt your child? Such words I cannot fathom someone saying with any sincerity. Or at all. I liken this comment to saying Why didn't you just get an abortion?
You don't invest in your child. Such judgement I don't believe I deserve. Such judgement I hope I have never and will never condemn upon someone.
I have nothing to say except that I am hurt.
Sticks and stones may break my bones, but your words have hurt me more.
