How do you know if you need to go to a grief support group or get a counselor? I don't know what is normal. I barely get to work and then come home and take care of my dog. Sometimes call my sister. I prefer being alone and don't answer the phone unless it is from someone that also has huge losses. - My mom passed November 17, 2011.

I am going to start going to a group this wednesday.  Before now I havent wanted to be out in public with my grief.  Im not sure Im ready now, but Im going to go on Wedsneday and see how it goes.  I guess if you are thinking about it then you should look into what is available to you and maybe give it a try.  Your grief is your own so the way you grieve is your own and sometimes the only way to know what works is to try it.  Thats what Im about to do.

"Hi all. I broke down in front of my roommate yesterday. I couldn't help it. Three weeks really gives you time to process a loss and the fact that he is never coming back. 9:41 p.m. on Sundays will forever haunt me I guess. That was the moment I…"
