I love to be reminded of those things, but it's not always good for me. If you ever experienced the death of a pet or loved one or had a rotten day, you'll be reminded of that too, and that can be a shock to your day.
My Facebook is filled with patients that I have supported and become friendly with over the last 10 years. That means that just about every single day I am reminded that someone I grew to care had disease progression or passed away.
It's overwhelming sometimes. I admit that there are days, even weeks, that I don't click on that button to "see my memories" because I don't know if I'll be strong enough to be reminded of a death anniversary.
Thankfully it's not always a sad reminder. There are those times that I do click that button and I see encouraging messages and posts to me from friends who are no longer with us. Its as if I'm hearing from them again. They've popped up to say hello and give me encouragement to continue doing the things that I do.
Double edge sword for sure but thank you Facebook for reminding us of the good things.
