Our expert says:
Grief is very hard work. And it takes a long time - at least 9 months to start really getting through it. Antdepressant and other drugs are useless for this purpose - this is not at all what they are designed to do. The best source of help would be to see a good and experienced counsellor, someone with experience in helping people work through their grief. Talk about things to the extent you want to ( you don't have to ) with family, friends, anyone who can sincerely listen, and take your time to adjust to this. We move on, gradually, to being free to remember the person with love for all that they were and all the time we did have with them, rather than only feeling bitter and sad that they are no longer physically present to us. Your local hospice may be able to suggest one or more good local counsellors with the right sort of experience to be useful to you
