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.

Moving Through the Seven Stages of Grief

When a heart breaks, you’re left gasping for air. After a while you seem fine, yet fall apart unexpectedly at random moments, sanity seemingly forsaken. There’s a saying that when a heart breaks, it cracks to allow golden love to shine through onto others. Do you see the value in going through this?It may not feel like it now, but grief is an honor. It is an honor to feel that much, to have loved that much. It teaches you compassion, gratitude, resilience, and the importance of grabbing life by…See More
