How did you cope with loss and grief during birthdays and holidays?
It has only been 7½ weeks since my mother passed away and tomorrow will be her birthday. I’ve already had to celebrate my birthday and my father’s birthday since she passed and that was difficult enough. I don’t know how I will cope tomorrow, especially with the lovely Facebook reminder I’ll see.
How did you spend the first birthday after the death of a loved one? This is the first time I’ve lost someone who was very close to me. I think it would help if I read how others dealt with their grief.
I do have two books I can read that will help.
