My Grammy passed away in July and it's been hard. I've never lost someone close to me so this is all new and pretty scary. I am a Christian and know that my Grammy is in a better place but it still hurts and frankly sucks. I have random times of crying and then anger, is this normal? Since she's passed my anxiety has sky rocketed. She passed from what the doctors believe was a major stroke, she had been too unstable for them to do an MRI at the time. She had her first major stroke years ago. I haven't felt like myself since then. My husband works night shift and has been working overtime a lot recently so he is sleeping through the day, gets up and goes to work. I've felt really lonely. My immediate family lives 8 hours away, so it's just my 2 children and me. Just wanting to see if someone is dealing with the same thing or has and how you were able to cope?
