“I had a miscarriage,” writes @meghanmccain. “I loved my baby, and I always will. To the end of my days I will remember this child — and whatever children come will not obscure that.” https://t.co/ks8ur8FUK8

“My miscarriage was a horrendous experience and I would not wish it upon anyone,” she writes. “I loved my baby, and I always will.”
“I blamed my age, I blamed my personality. I blamed everything and anything a person could think of,” McCain says, including her “high-pressure, high-visibility, high-stress” job on the daytime talk show. “This, I told myself, is the reason my body is a rock-strewn wasteland in which no child may live.”
To make matters worse, McCain says her brief absence from “The View” sparked speculation about her whereabouts, taking away from her time to privately mourn.
On Saturday she thanked people on Instagram for reaching out after her piece was published. She began with a Rocky Balboa quote that reads:
“It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard ya hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward.”

Ben and I are the luckiest, most incredibly blessed people in the world surrounded by love and support. My hope is by continuing to share grief and loss, and addressing these taboo subjects head on it will help people who have experienced the same to feel less alone. None of us are alone in this. I was petrified to share my story publicly but I never, ever let fear dictate my life choices. I will always take the leap, I will always roll the dice. 🎲 And to this man who loves my wild heart, has never tried to change a single thing about me, and continues to be the greatest source of strength, love and faith a woman could ever ask for ~ I thank God for sending you to me every day, Ben. #rideordie
