I am new to the site and I am so desperately hoping that somewhere out there is an online friend who is going through the same thing and can help me feel 'normal.' My mother just passed away (12/12/07) and I am more of a mess now than the days following her death. Sadly, the same week she died I had a falling out with my closest friends leaving me with no network/support system. Although my husband tries, he is a very practicle guy and just doesn't 'get' my grief. Today he threatened to call our family doctor for depression. It has not even been a month and I am functioning...I just have days where I am so sad. Like my mother when I am nervous I get ....well we will just say a sour stomach. I have missed a couple days of work as a result. I know I am cranky...and sometimes I feel like I am numb. I can't believe I am reaching out to complete strangers for help/advice but honestly I am not sure I could be this honest with someone face to face....I hope someone will be able to relate and have some advice. (thanks for listening)
