Re: grief process

It is not uncommon to push people away after any trauma, not only death. You are facing so many issues at the moment, and these are overwhelming you. Can you talk to a grief counsellor or trusted clergyman, doctor, therapist? This is a lot to try to handle on your own. Be clear with your partner that what you are dealing with has bowled you over, and that you need time/space to cope. Do not shut him out tho, you are in the long haul together for these bad times as well as the good. Ignore his insensitive family, what is wrong with some people?? Write down everything that you would have liked to say to your grandmother, and your memories of her. Do not waste anger on the aunts and uncles, they are nothing to you. This is between you and your grandma. Sera.
