I'm having a tough time because I lost my grandma a couple years ago and that was a real hard loss. She was one of the nicest, kindest, generous people I've ever known. Anytime anyone walked into her house, she offered them apple pie, custard, etc... right away. She would buy my sister and I our favorite toys when we were young every time we came to visit we got to go to Toys R Us and have a blast, go to the movies etc... Everyone who knew her thought she was like Betty White from The Golden GIrls a real sweet, gentle wonderful person. I miss her so! Now just last week my grandpa- one my hero's and mentors whom I am extremely close to had a stroke. He has always been very intelligent, he worked at GE in a very important position for years and always encouraged me to draw on his chalkboard he has in his office. One of my drawings is still on the board and it's lasted for 3 years. He always has been incredibly encouraging to me and is really just one of my best friends. I'm in college in my last year about so I'm still young and losing my grandpa and now dealing with my grandpa's stroke has made these past two years tougher than I ever dreamed they would be. They were both two of my best friends in this world. Since finding out about my grandpa's stroke last week, I have felt extremely sad and physically and emotionally I'm drained. I feel almost completely swallowed up by depression, I'm dizzy, light headed, drained, tired, etc... I normally sing, draw, and do lots of activities. I'm in summer school and going from the hospital a few hours away, back to home, then to online school is really hard. I see my grandpa who is paralyzed on one side of his body and has a hard time speaking so he slurs, then I travel 3 hours to go home, then I get up the next day and do hours of homework. It's been hard on me. I wish I knew how to feel less tired I feel like I have lyme disease almost and depression along with it because my muscles hurt and I'm deeply sad. Not sure how to improve this. - Lizzie

So, I ended up going back to a different support group online. It was better. I don't know if anyone remembers, but I was going to one and the guy kept getting on me about anger, when I didn't even really feel angry. It's funny, because one of the issues that I was bringing to the group was this odd, but ongoing problem that I've had since the pandemic, and it's that I am not getting my...
I really need advice. I posted this in another group but wanted to see if any of you can help me as well. My boyfriend of over 5 years has been very depressed. Pretty much through the whole relationship and probably before me. It has just been getting worse. His health isn't well. He has been having bad stomach issues for a few years now and is in almost constant pain and its getting...
