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.

Loss of a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide

If you have lost a loved one to alcohol, substance abuse or suicide please share your story or feelings here. Share the love and beauty of the one you lost. Losing someone any of these ways is not natural and can be hard to understand and ask why? I lost my Mother to an overdose 9 years ago. She also suffered from major depression. Her doctor got her hooked on pain medication and she was addicted most of my life. These doctors who were suppose to help her ended up killing her in the end. I also…See More

Sibling Loss

This group is for anyone that has lost a brother or sister. Sibling loss is often minimized and people don't realize how devastating losing a sibling can be. I lost my older sister and my life will never be the same. She was my only sibling, I looked up to her, I went to her for everything. I lost my past, present and future. It is traumatic.See More
