Lauren Scruggs may be making progress in her recovery, but according to her mom last week was very difficult.
Cheryl Scruggs wrote on Friday night they are now working through the five stages of grief: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
Her entry continued:
We have experienced a little of this along this journey, but we now face it head on. Hard? um excruciating……….
They said it was coming……..and it has. It's healthy, yes. It's necessary, yes. But it's brutal.
At the beginning, many of the doctors told us "this will be a marathon, not a sprint; this will be a long rode to recovery.". I guess they were right.
I feel like such a debbie-downer; not being my upbeat, positive self, And I find it hard to write and put on paper what we are really experiencing, Have two months really gone by? Did Christmas really come and go? Is it really 2012? Hard to believe it's been 2 months since it all happened; sometimes it feels like a day; sometimes it feels like 5 years.
We'd like to think the worst is over for Lauren, but as Cheryl said it will indeed be a long road to recovery.
