Leigh I really hope the psychologist can help you work through your feelings. It might not make you feel any differently if I say this, but regardless, you do NOT deserve to be punished and what happened is not your fault. Also, if your grief and depression did affect the way you responded to the situation with your mother, this is also not your fault. Maybe you could think about it this way – if someone else told you this story, what would you say to them? Would you consider them responsible for their parents’ deaths? I bet you’re being way harder on yourself than you would be on someone else. Lack of sleep probably isn’t helping either… hopefully your psych can help you with this.
