This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of death or grieving, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So I'm just going to lay it out. I just found out my grandma has passed. We were close, I mean I lived with her for a couple years. I'm number than I expected, but it's probably just the shock. I keep telling myself "I'll get through it, I always do." But, somehow, this is more upsetting than when my brother passed. Maybe it isn't, maybe I've shut off my memory so much from that period that I can't remember exactly how it felt. I expect I'll eventually do the same here. My grandpa's taking it pretty hard. He's always been a pretty heavy drinker, but man I could hear it when I called him.


And here I was, signing up to the forums to help others. I guess it's a good thing I did. Anyways, thanks for listening.

I'm glad you joined TeenHelp. It's amazing of you to want to help others but remember you are encouraged to seek help for yourself, too.

I am sorry to hear about your grandmother. I agree with you in that what you're experiencing could be shock. Often times, when something bad happens, people put their feelings away, only for them to resurface later when they are able to cope with them in a healthier way.

The shock itself might last a while or it could go in and out, as you could already know due to the loss of your brother. Try to remember to take your time with everything. Let yourself feel whatever it is you're feeling. And above all, take care of yourself as best as you can during this time.

Feel free to send me a message if you'd like to talk.
