Re: new

Yes, it helps if there is someone you can ask to organise this - to pick up the phone, make a few enquiries...find a counsellor who counsels in grief and loss. I couldn't release my frozen jaw, let lone make a phone call in the early days of loss. If I could tell the newly bereaved 'me' anything, it...

Re: new

Sorry, I've been out bush with no signal. Lynn, all of what you describe is normal....I know it doesn't feel normal, far from anything that has ever been normal in your life before, but it is a normal set of responses to an abnormal experience - so it is normal.

Re: Are these feelings normal

Geez....just read my post above, then looked at how recent your loss is, 0218. Take no notice of me and take care of you in the most gentle way you can, please. My heart goes out to you, from mum to mum.

Re: Are these feelings normal

Yes, you have really described that well. It's not convoluted at all. I encourage you to write. Although the waves do not bring me to my knees as they once did, A little voice inside pipes up at their approach...
