So sorry for your loss. First, it takes time and every person is different..don’t let others make you think you “should” be over your grief. Also, a part of you will grieve loss of your mother forever but it won’t hurt so much like it does now, Highly recommend the griefshare network...google it up in line and sign up and they will send u 365 days of short couple of sentences etc...that go along with stages of grief and it really does help...having used it personally,too, and they do not sell or give out your info. Also, there are local griefshare groups likely meeting near you and they will be specific like loss of a parent group versus loss of a spouse or loss of a child. Simultaneously, it is great idea to see a therapist who can help you with grief...With very prolonged grief, seeing a psychiatrist to evaluate for need for a medication may be in order....but it is normal to grieve for a parent for a long time..and certain songs, events, people will bring them to mind. The anniversary date of her death will be hard..go ahead and plan for it and perhaps on that day plant a tree in her memory or look through old photos of her...If not, make that memory box with items placed in it that remind you of her....so take care of you..plan for time to grieve...it is o.k. To cry. Hope this helps... Blessings to you....Most sincerely, Dr. Amy READ MORE
