Daddy died 7 1/2 months ago. We know how the first few go..the state of shock and so on. For the last few months,I've done well. I can go to his grave without crying, I can talk about him and smile. All that changed on the sixth month mark. I spent the entire weekend curled up on my couch crying and trying to make my fiance understand how bad I needed him with me that weekend. Work won on that one. Thanksgiving sucked. I stayed locked in the house and cried more. Now Christmas is coming and anytime I'm alone, I'm crying the way I did the first few days after his death. Why now? The raw emotions are back, the insane vulnerability, and that feeling of being so totally and completely alone. Has anyone else experience a relapse? Is this normal? Or do I need to get professional help?
