I'm 18 and the past 3 years I have been going through a really really ruff time. My step dad and mum got a divorce, My great Grandma dies, my best friend dies, 3 school friends die, 2 aunties die, uncle gets diagnosed with memory loss and my auntie gets diagnosed with cancer and I loose a baby. Most of these have happened in the space of a year. Been finding it really hard to deal with loosing all these people that was such close to me, like my best friend, she got taken from us at the age of 17, too young to go, too young! My boyfriend keeps telling me that I need to go for help because I'm always down and crying, but I can't face sitting in a room with someone opening up to them, But I find it easier to do this and share online with other people that might be in my situation.

take care of yourself
by: Ally

take care of yourself and take some time out. Just do what is right for you. You will open up when you are ready - remember don't let anyone else guide your grieving no matter how well meaning they are.

Look after yourself
by: Helen

Jessica, my heart goes out to you, there have been so many losses for you over a year for you.
I'm so pleased you have such a wonderful caring boyfriend, he can see the changes in you and seems to be very concerned for your health.
It is great that you have found this site for you to express how you are feeling.
I just lost my dad 3 months ago and found this to be traumatic, however your loss is overwhelming, and I truly am amazed at how you could cope without professional help.
I know people grieve in different ways, your boyfriend is really trying to help you through the grief, however he knows that it's truly beyond him. Remember true friends will always tell you the truth!
I feel it is extremely important for you to express your grief and emotions, in a safe and secure environment, writing here can help, however if you should find that the emotions you are experiencing alienate you from your friends and family seek out a counsellor you feel comfortable with, you may even change a few times to get the right person for you.
Jessica look after yourself and take time daily to check out how your body is coping with all the losses.
I hope find comfort in your friends and family down the road to recovery from grief. Xxx
