How have you or how are you handling grief if you've also lost someone special to you recently? I lost my grandpa when I was in high school so that was about 16 yrs ago. Now that we've just lost my MIL a month ago, I've been feeling different- more tired than usual (went to sleep at 9 through the night when I normally would around 11), my appetite changes thoughout the day (I'm hungry but I'm so stressed that I have problems relaxing to eat without digestion problems later), and just sad. I keep reading on websites that grief mimics depression and I certainly feel sad and want to know how I can cope better?! I obivously don't like feeling sad so want to know how others have coped through tough times in their lives? I've seen a grief counselor 3 times now, about once a week and I just feel like I'm saying the same answers each time. She said to call her if I feel like I need to talk again but I don't know what would be different. Feel free to PM me if you prefer to share what you've experienced and what you've done to feel better. Thanks.
