      Hi all,  I'm sure you've noticed some changes in the forums. We've again had to do some updates, so that's why things may look a little different. Nothing major should have changed.  Also, we are going to start adding advertisements sensitive to our community on the boards. This is something we are experimenting with, and we will certainly make sure they are in the best interests of everyone. We want to make sure our forums continue to stay accessible and cost free to all of our members, and this is a way to ensure this.  If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to privately message me or email me at Konnie@beyondindigo.com.  As always, we will be here with you, ModKonnie

Feeling like I'm going backwards

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm steph I'm 29 and I lost my nan in November, now I know I was lucky to have her until 29 as people keep pointing out but she was more than just a nan, my mum worked so hard to provide for me that my grandparents pretty much raised me, we all lived under one roof and quite frankly she was my favourite person in the whole world, she meant so much to me that I was crushed when she died, but I'm feeling worse now than I did in November and I can't understand why, I'm struggling to fall asleep, waking up crying, finding it hard to think about her, I had my first panic attack last week and I've been shaky since... But why is it 3 months later it's hit me?

Grief is silly in that it is up and down after we lose someone or something.  Impacting you a few months after your Nan passed away is completely normal and will likely go through stages.  Losing someone we love is like losing a piece of ourselves.  Take gentle care of yourself.

Dear Steptreks,

My deepest sympathies and condolences. I'm very sorry for your loss. Please be kind to yourself. There is no right way or wrong way to grieve.  Grief takes many forms.  Many people compare it to a rollercoaster. I know its really hard right now, but be as gentle as possible with yourself as possible. Let the hurt and sorrow out.

If you want to maybe consider talking to a grief counsellor or joining a support group.

Take care of yourself the best you can. Thinking of you. Sending all my thoughts and prayers.
