Leslie Posted March 25, 2008 Share Posted March 25, 2008 Hi all-- I'm not sure if this is going to make any sense...but sometimes posting here helps me get clarity. It's been five months since my dad died. I think about him constantly--and the loss that I feel can be overwhelming at times. And for many weeks, I have described my state of mind as "shattered." Pretty much unable to wrap my mind around the magnitude of this loss. Lately, I find that I feel really, really numb. Almost like I feel nothing. I still have a constant loop going in my mind--"my dad is gone"--but I don't really feel anything. I don't know if this is my mind trying to give my body a break from processing so much emotion--if this is denial--or if this is healing. It's just strange--because I've always prided myself on being very in touch with my feelings and state of mind. But things feel sort of blank--not really in a peaceful way...but in a strange numb way. Does any of this make sense? I guess I'm just worried that I'm having a calm before the storm--and that I'm about to have a massive fall soon. Thanks for listening, Leslie Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
