Members jberends Posted March 26, 2012 Members Report Share Posted March 26, 2012 Well, where do I start???? what do i say???I am in the very early stages of grief. having lost my mum only 6wks ago. She died only a week after the 5th anniversary of my dad's death (they had seperated 5yrs prior to him dying) and was completely unexpected. both me and my brothers all arranged to go straight away and help our step-father. within only a few days we had arranged the crematorium and that happened the following friday. the following few weeks i seemed to be staying strong and dealing with things. Wasn't so.16th March was a memorial service for everybody that knew my mum (the crematorium was only closest family and friends). 17th March would of been my dad's birthday and to top it off, Sunday was Mothers Day. Since then I have been a complete wreck. I will be walking down the street or sat in work and suddenly start crying. My sleeping pattern is shot to peices. When i do wake I can't bear the thought of getting up. I have to force myself to.After Losing my dad it took 2years for the grief to show itself. this time it's almost instantly and feels 100x worse. I know that it wont be sorted over night but anyone who reads this and wishes to post a reply, i would love to hear ways in which you learnt to deal with the pain or channel things in a positive way. Finally, I would just like to thank you for taking time to read this and if you reply Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
