I am writing an essay and I happen to be writing it about my mom and everything that happened during the months she was sick and I took care of her before she died in June. Oh my gosh - I just realized that I have completely hidden those memories in the back of my mind and now that I just had to remember them they seem like a HORRIBLE nightmare. It doesn't even seem real or like I acutally lived through that. I started sobbing writing this paper because it made me remember all those bad months we spent while she was sick.

Do you think it's necessary to remember the bad times in order to grieve properly? I'm not done with the essay and I'm kind of scared to finish it...
