About my Loss:
on September 27,2016 I lost my wife's grandmother. She was dear to me, iv'e known her for over 20 yrs and she reminded me of my grandmother which i lost in 2011. I have not grieved for them because i don't know how. I think the reason being is that i know that it was there time. On May 16, 2017 I lost one of my older sister s to active addition. This is really hitting me hard. I don't know how to cope with this loss. I'm always emotional and when someone mentions her name i get defensive. I am in therapy, but not for grieving. I was told to seek grieving therapy and counseling and group therapy would be of help. The therapy in my area is not covered by my insurance and is way beyond my budget.
