Meakin your story is not long. It is good that you are able to express your grief. I am sorry for your loss of your grandparents. You are so young to have to process this loss of grandparents. It is very important that you do cry and express your grief. Don't bottle it up otherwise it will make you ill. You shouldn't go through these 3 losses by yourself. You could try CRUSE bereavement services and talk to a counsellor who would be able to help you through your grief and offer you the guidance you need at this young age. You need to take ONE DAY AT A TIME. This is how I coped with my loss of my husband to cancer 18 months ago. Cancer is a horrible disease to watch someone you love slowly die from this disease. I feel sad and lonely which is the normal process to work through. You may feel very alone right now, but don't isolate yourself from other people and family. It is hared when everyone is dealing with their own grief and you may feel neglected. Life does get better in time, but this is a slow process. I hope you get the comfort and support you need from your family and friends.
