Our expert says:
Dear g-man, I know exactly how you feel, having lost my own mum a few months back. ANy grief is disorienting and difficult, especially at first, and only gradually improves over months. Its worse with a parent, and worse still when you nhad been a major part of each other's life, and where you were involved directly in her care. Medication doesn't help, though counselling can help. YOu don't immediately need to be strong, but of course, knowing her as well as you did, you know what she would hope for, for you. I'd guess that she'd expect you to be very sad for a while, but would want you to continue living and working, and work towards being able to remember her with joy and not only with pain and sadness.
