How to deal with the grief of my Grandma's Death?I am 15 years old and ever since I was little I always had my grandma there for me to call and talk to with every night. I stayed with her every other weekend, we called each other every night, we saw each other every Wednesday and plus many other days. She was one of my best friends and I have had a really ruff time since the Summer on June 29 2011 she passed away and she was fine the night before when we left and we thought she would be fine and we were going up early the next day but she passed away during the night on our way up there. I only have one regret and that would've been for me to stay with her. That was the worst day of my life and me and my mom have had a really rough time dealing with it because we were all best friends. It has almost been 7 months and I miss her so much I actually cry more now then I did its like it has finally kicked in but I still can't believe it because it was unexpected. I don't know how to deal with this sometimes I break down and cry at school and I cry myself to sleep 2 to 3 times a week. Since she passed away I have been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I am always tired. My doctor is sending me to a counseling thing because she said kids with fibro usually get depressed. But its not that I have fibro I miss my grandma unbelievably much. I talk to my mom sometimes but I try not to because I don't ant to make her sadder then she already is about it. I talk to my boyfriend and he always helps and comforts me but I still cry and cry. I don't know what to do to help myself not cry as much about it I try to remember the good times and I do smile but I always seem to break down because I miss her so much!! Any suggestions? Thanks! God Bless<3
Grief is a part of being human. Try talking to an understanding friend or a guidance counselor. There really is no perfect way to deal with grief because people handle it differently. Try writing in a journal or finding a new hobby. I find it really relaxing to write stories. I hope this helps.
Please know that it is perfectly normal for you to feel this way. Death is very painful and leaves family members suffering very very much. It will do you good to talk about it even write down your thoughts and feelings. Keeping it all inside does not help. It takes time though. Your grandmother was a huge part of your life and you were obviously a huge part of hers and a great grandaughter as well. You can be in peace knowing you loved her and took care of her and were there for her. Also know she is in NO WAY suffering. She is in a deep sound sleep, has no thoughts, feelings or memories. She wants you to move on and keep your memories with her in your heart. John 5:28&29 says that God will resurrect the dead and they will have the opportunity to live here on earth transformed into paradise. Pray to God for his holy spirit and guidance, he will help you through this. You will NEVER forget, but I promise the pain you feel will be easier to deal with as time passes. Hope this helps, you will be in my prayers. Have a good day. JW Miami, FL
you should not have been diagnosed with FMS without addressing the depression 1st... in all likely hood--you only have depression....
