Hi all. Need a little help here. Before I get to the question, here's the problem. 2 years ago I lost my brother, mother and father in an 8 month span. Things happened so close I never had time to grieve any one of them. I suffer from depression on top of that. I was in the hospital on suicide watch just three weeks ago because of my depression, grief and other issues. My grief therapist says I need to cry. I can't. I constantly stop myself. My parents taught me that men don't cry, driven home by the fact that the one time I remember my father doing it, my mother called him a cry baby. My wife thinks I'm 'one of those' when I told her that sexual favors is not what I need right now, but that the therapist told me I need to let it out. The only crying I ever do is alone in the middle of the night in shame. And to top it off the therapist says I need to grieve WITH someone. My cousin died a month ago, and she was the only one I could ever grieve with. This whole got nobody to share with has got me screwed up. Any thoughts on how to grieve WITH someone, when you feel nobody wants to hear it?
