Evening, I guess I am here to try & get perspective & I am not losing my mind. My mother passed on Christmas Morning at 8am 2020. She also had Dementia for 8yrs & died aged 71. There were so many times of mourning. As you can imagine 2021 was a bit of a blur. 2022 was a “trying to move on in Life”. As Xmas is approaching out of the blue, I started to get anxious a couple weeks ago. Time is getting closer, and I am getting so much worse. I cry, I get angry, self-doubt, sleep is crap, & then to add to it my friend tells me I am needy. I am hurt and angry with that as well. I said to friend that only a person who had not walked the road of grief or trauma would say something like that. I guess in saying all this I am doing a lot of reflecting as well as mourning. I feel like I am on a roller coaster of emotion. I guess I would like to know, “am I normal”? Is this grief?
