      Hi Dawn. I’m so sorry you lost your Grandma. She sounds like she was super special, that she encouraged you, loved you for who you are, and saw in you the person you could become. It’s really hard to deal with the death of anyone, but especially someone who truly knew you and loved you. I lost my grandfather when I was a lot older than you, and still I sobbed and sobbed for a long time. I can still feel the loss.

      Sometimes people will say “it’s time to move on, it’s time to get over it.” Please don’t believe that; grieving takes time, and we have to go THROUGH the grieving, not around it. No matter what anyone says it is more than ok, it is right and it is honoring your Grandma to grieve, you don’t have to keep your emotions inside. Is there someone else who is also grieving her, that maybe you can talk with? Even just to say how much you miss her, and maybe to talk about some warm memories you remember? It’s possible to grieve by yourself but it can be very comforting to have someone with you.

      If there is no one, think about calling your local distress center. They’ve usually in the phone book. Or if you are still in school, if there is a guidance counselor you like that you can talk with, or maybe a teacher? Your pain will gradually change into something softer, something like treasured memories combined with sadness but also with warmth. I wish you strength and courage, Dawn.
