I am 32 and I lost my mom because of covid. Feeling depressed, devastated and having psychological support. I wonder is it normal to feel so depressed that you don't want to talk to anybody?
BTW, I had lost my dad when I was only 2 years old because of traffic accident. He died and the court found him more guilty than the driver. I have just found out it, because mom always hided it from me.

I'm sorry for your loss.  Yes, it is normal after the devastation of a loved one's death to feel so depressed that you don't want to talk to anyone -- but you can also get help with those feelings, if you choose. There are therapists and grief support groups that many people find helpful; you might want to look for one or both of those in your area (you can usually at least start your search online). 

Thanks for your kind support. I have been seeing a therapist for more than a year because of the anxiety disorder, and for 6 months because of grief and depression. What are the grief support groups ?

You're very welcome. Have you found that seeing a therapist has helped you? I hope it has. I don't know about any specific grief support groups. as I don't attend them myself, but I have seen posts about them by other people (I don't remember if they were here or on other sites, probably both). Your therapist could probably recommend some such groups to you; alternatively, if you attend church/synagogue/temple, your religious advisor might be able to provide information about such groups as well.

Death bureaucracy

When my father died - he was a victim of a violent crime - me and my family went through hell. But, from all the bad things, the memories from the funeral arrangements still linger in my thoughts. The bureaucracies: my father's siblings discussing if he should be buried with their parents, the "open coffin" decisions...etc.I'm not sure if I resent any of the options we made, but it's only me that comes back to these death bureaucracies? Does anyone also have similar experiences? It seems so…See More

"Is there an online support group for survivors of the loss of an only child which meets on a weekly or monthly basis? My Aunt and Uncle have lost their only child - a 19 year-old son - and they are in such pain... we need help"
