You’re not okay and the world doesn’t understand.
This is more painful than you ever imagined. You have a hard time concentrating on anything else. You’re close to tears all the time. You’re afraid if you start crying you will never stop. You’re not sure if this is normal and if you will ever get back to the way you were. What you are experiencing feels awful and out-of-control.
Loss comes in many forms. And when it comes to grief, there are no shoulds and no platitudes. I won’t remind you of all the things you have to be grateful for. I’ll just be there in it with you for as long as it takes.
If you are sad and grieving, call now. You don’t have to be alone with this.
