What do I do? - July 9th 2012, 02:33 AM

I have no idea what to do anymore. Ive lost so much in this past month its getting unbearable. I lost my Uncle, then my boyfriend, and now my childhood pet Jack. I dont know if somethins wrong with me mentally or what. I didnt know what catergory this should be in. But things have been really really hard this year, especially this past month. Ill be startin my Freshy year in highschool where most of the population already despises me. Anyways...enough about that... Somethin odd has been happenin to me. Normally Im there for everyone and the strongest person mentally. I always help others and put there needs above mine. But now a days Im findin myself forgettin lots of things. Important things. Things that happened an hour ago. And i have these horrible horrible daydreams of...hurting people. Im so scared... And i have been thinkin these horrible thoughts....all my friends say its because i never let any of my emotions show, I havent cried hardly at all even though i have lost some very close things to me like my childhoot pet Jack....So...do i need to just let go or what....? I just....it feels like i cant feel anymore, i know its stupid soundin probaly...but its like everythin feels artifical. Fake. Like a lie.

Profound grief can cause your life to feel surreal, and it may be difficult to connect with other people and/or express how you're feeling. In my opinion, if everything was going relatively well before all of this happened, I wouldn't worry about something being wrong mentally. You're going through an adjustment period, and it's normal to feel off-balance during that time. Your friends may have a point regarding the idea of bottling up emotions. Why not try sharing a few things with one or two people in your life, and see if that helps? The distractability/not being able to remember things well could easily be accounted for by the grief, and while the daydreams/thoughts may be seen as a warning sign to some, I also think that can be one way of coping with profound grief. You've lost some very important things in your life, and you're upset, so you're lashing out in some way. As long as you aren't actually hurting other people, and as long as the daydreams/thoughts aren't greatly impairing your ability to function, I don't think it's a cause for immediately alarm. Once you can find a way to manage the grief (such as talking about it and focusing on self-care), I think a lot of these problems will fade. If they don't, you may want to consider talking to a grief counselor or some other kind of psychological professional.
