J.C. Posted October 20, 2004 Share Posted October 20, 2004 The book was a mystery by Sue Grafton and I was surprised to see the following words about grief. * I feel like grief is an illness, I can't recover from. What worries me is I notice there is a certain attraction to the process that's hard to give up. It's painful, but at least it allows me to feel close to my lost one. Once in a while, I catch myself thinking of something else and I feel guilty. It seems disloyal not to hurt, disloyal to forget even for a moment that this person is gone. I try to wean myself. Every day I mourn a little less. In the meantime, I pretend to be a whole person, but I'm not. J.C. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
