My father died suddenly on June 23,2008. Since that time I have spent every waking hour with my mother. I just returned to my home in another state, where I live alone and away from family. I feel as though my mourning is almost starting over. Tomorrow I go back to work for the first time since his death. My office is relatively close and everyone feels free to walk into each other's office. I'm not ready to talk, relive or see anyone yet. How do I not offend everyone while I am trying to return to my life? I know if I allow a single hug, I will fall apart.
