Our Angel

by Shauna

I lost my grandma ten years ago in August to cirrhosis of the liver but not from alcohol. I think about her every day. Is it normal? I don't feel it is but then I think of what an impact she had on me even though she passed when I was only twelve. I am now twenty-one. My brother and I were the closest grandchildren to her, we were always over at her house. The things I remember the most about her were Cheerios, carmex, and juicy fruit gum. My mom and I always took her to her doctors appointments so I remember waiting at her appointments a lot also. I still cry over her sometimes. My grandma was pretty much my other parent, maybe that's why I take it so hard. She did more for me than my own father. And I owe her a lifetime of thanks for my grandma still holds a special place in my heart. I love you and I can't wait for the day I get to see you again<3

Shauna I am sorry for your loss of your grandmother. It is not wrong to think of your grandmother as often as you need to even if this is every day. Because it has been 10yrs. you may be struggling with grief and could benefit from grief counselling in order to get you to a place where you will have the memories but not the raw pain of this loss.
Because this loss still hurts you so much may mean it is healthy for you to start doing something to resolve the pain into HEALING. Your grandmother was your nurturer and she was a very significant person in your life and this is not wrong. You need to HEAL from this LOSS and you need to process the need for some outside professional support just to move you forward a little.
