Our expert says:
So sorry to hear of your grief. Loss of anyone significant to us is always hard, usually much harder than other people can realize. In my experience, the shorter the illness and the more unexpected the loss, the more difficult it can be for those of us kleft behind, though presumably its less awful for the person we lose. And as you imply, apart from the bare facts of such situations, there's all the extra bother of appointments, waiting rooms, organizing things.
And of course, which is why we call it Grief Work, grieving is really hard work and really exhausting.
And working through a significant grief takes at least 9 months or more, so these are still early days for you.
Time is the essential ingredient. Medication rarely helps. Counselling, if one can find a good local counsellor withe xperience of assisting with grief work, can be useful, too
