Thanks Maree,
Im sorry youve lost your parents also. Its a tough and lonely journey at times, this grief. My friends are the same, they dont really get it. I adore them and value their company, but they havent lost any of their parents, and just dont know what to say, especially as im going through deep depression also. I try to keep my contact with some of them abit conservative at moment, but still like to see one or two of them regularly, which i find are understanding and compassionate the moment. There is no time frame for grief, ive found that you will have it with you forever, this pain and sorrow, but it will ease and you learn to live on, and be happy, whichbis what they would want you to. Its a painful process, and it changes you forever. Its easy to get angry at people with any comments they might make, which seem stupid, i get that to, but be gentle and lenient with yourself. Its normal to feel alot of these things as your dealing with your grief, everyones different. Im starting a grief emotion journal also, when i have bad intense days of crying, anger, sorrow,,etc. Thats helping.
Take care of yourself.
