Not Okay, Krista

Not Okay.


about the piece.
This was to show what was really going through my head when I said "I'm Okay". I actually stopped saying it and just switched to "I'm functioning". - Krista

about the artist.
Krista is a 27 years old woman who has had three healthy, full term pregnancies followed by three miscarriages. First at 12wks (blighted ovum), second at 16wks4ds (Benjamin), and the most recent at 21wks (Kadence).

I also had a chemical pregnancy the first cycle after my first loss and the first cycle after my last loss, both were devastating. Since my last loss I have been using art as a way of getting my grief out and have really appreciated this site and seeing other women's work. - Krista


  1. I love the honesty in this piece. I can relate to it so well.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. so often, we have all felt those things. One of my 'grief songs' was I'm not okay by my chemical romance.. how can you be okay after the death of your baby!? :( thanks for sharing..

  3. Wonderful! I think I may have to give this a try.

  4. Thank you. This is so...what others don't understand.
