Hi,

I am so sorry for your loss. it's only been 2 weeks. Allow yourself time to grieve. There is no time limit. I would encourage you to either join a grief group in your local area or get a grief counseling. This has helped me.

Everyone grieves in their own way. No one can tell you when to stop. You will never get over the passing of your loved one, but in time you will get through it.

Meanwhile, take care of you. Take a long walk in the park or around your neighborhood. Treat yourself to something special. Plant a tree in her name or volunteer to help others..sometimes it helps us when we help others. But above all, take care of you. Remember, "Put the mask on yourself first" then try and help someone else.

It's been tough for me. It's been 4 years since my mom passed away, and 4 short months after she passed, my favorite (more like a little brother) nephew passed away suddenly. I am still grieving (from time to time). Sometimes I can remember them with a smile, but there are times I allow myself time to cry.

If anyone tells you to "just get over it," they are wrong and you may need to re-evaluate your friendship/relationship with that person.

There are definitely 5-7 stages of grief, and they don't come in no particular order. I am sending prayers your way. Stay strong. Peace be with you.

My faith in God and spending time with Him helpes me too.

Hugs to you.

Sincerely,

Lisa

My Story

When I was twelve my mother was murdered then my beloved sweet grandmother died when I was 18. My maternal grandfather died when I was 22. My maternal grandmother died when I was 33 and my final living parent/grandparent died when I was 35.  I lived with a lot of loss most of it came at a sudden clip.  I'm left with incredible feeling of loneliness even though I've been married for 20+ years and have two wonderful children.  It's tough to share my true feelings with my wife because it's so hard…See More

My Story

When I was twelve years old, my mother was brutally murdered during a robbery of our home.  I came within minutes of finding her body but by sheer chance I didn't.  It has been over 35 years since that day but it still effects my life today.  As a child, I went through the trial of the man convicted of killing my beautiful mother then as a man I went through his parole process finally his death from illness in prison. See More
