[maybe trig.?] 5 years later and breaking down and crying? - January 19th 2010, 11:45 PM

My grandmother died 5 years ago... And she died right before Christmas.. Bit after the first few years I was able to get through it... But tonight I randomly broke down and burst out crying from the pure
fact she's gone... We weren't incredible close... I wish we could have been closer.. I wish she was still here... The worst part is.. I don't really remember HER , but I can remember the funeral so clearly tonight.. And I don't know why this hasn't happen in a long time... Not like this... Bleh.

First of all, I am so sorry for your loss. It takes different amounts of time for people to "realize" a true loss. I am sure your grandmother loved you very much and would want the best for you, so talk to her because she is listening. Keep your chin up and make her proud! I'm sure she wished you were a lot closer too, but it is not too late! Talk to her when you're lonley, talk to her when you're happy! She is watching over you! It is okay to miss people you love! Crying can be a good thing, don't be ashamed to do it!

PM me if you need to talk, I'm always here!

Hi Grace,

I know this must be really overwhelming and scary for you, but rest assured that this kind of thing is completely normal. When we lose someone, our loss always tends to remain a part of us. Many things can trigger the memory of someone we've lost, and it sounds like that's what happened with you earlier today. For whatever reason, you were reminded of the loss of your Grandma, and all of the things that happened during the time that she died. Because of such a sudden onslaught of memories, you obviously had a hard time managing. It's normal to feel the need to simply sit down and cry, even after five years. Your Grandma, even if you didn't have a close relationship, still remains a part of you, and so does her loss.

If you've been feeling this sadness often lately, talk to someone about it. Talking to another family member who has been impacted by your grandmothers death may be a great way to regain your strength. Don't feel as if you shouldn't cry, because crying is often one of the things that helps us get through things most.

I'm very sorry for your loss, and I hope that things have since improved in your life. PM me anytime. Take care!

A lonely soul in a land of broken hearts
