Wondering

by Megan Smith
(Tennessee)

I am wondering if I am going through a grieving process. My loved one is in a corrections facility. I have only known this individual for eight or nine months but we are close. I seem to be more angry than depressed, I don't know why I'm so angry. I miss him dearly and my anger is not toward him or anyone in particular. I have tried exercising, cleaning and keeping up normal activities but nothing seems to help. I feel like I have suffered a loss and I'm angry about it. I just want to be myself again.

I understand :(
by: Terri

You have lost what would have been a good future with him. You have lost the day to day interactions with him. You have lost the him you wanted. So of course you are grieving. I am sure everyone must be saying 'he is right there' or 'this is temporary' but it is ok to be mad.

It is ok to miss what you had. It is understandable and do not think it wrong to feel the way you feel! Let it out, the best way you know how. Clean, run, box, whatever will help you to vent. Remember that you have every right to feel angry!

Loss
by: Brenda

Loss is not always due to death. Sometimes it can be due to divorce or as in your case due to your loved one being in jail. Also grief has many avenues it can take and anger is one. I lost my 27 year old son in May and his older sister has been angry at everyone or anyone.
