Hi @mikey2022

I am so sorry to hear what happened to your mum and dad. Your losses are very recent and traumatic and that must be really hard to deal with! What you are going through is completely normal, there are so many stages to grief, denial, anger etc… This is how we process change, and from my personal experience with loss, I have also found it impacts my body and over all health. I have also experienced nausea, lack of appetite, a constant knot in my stomach, lack of sleep, worrying, overthinking etc…I think all the shock and adrenaline and sadness throws our bodies out of balance for a while, and just like you I wish it was easier to only celebrate the good and feel ok. Thank you for reaching out and sharing your experience, it really does help me and others to not feel so alone when experiencing times like this. Please keep reaching out and stay strong.

Here are some resources I have found quite helpful.

https://www.goodmourning.com.au – this is a grief podcast.

Some clips from this podcast can be found on the Griefline website.

Support groups also can also be found on the Griefline website.

I look forward to your next post.
