I'm asking because I'm dealing with it and really sucking at it.
I did the same thing when my mother passed away.
I fluctuate between putting myself on the couch and analyzing my feelings from a distance
Indulging in some really stupid and potentially self-destructive mind (mixed-with-reality) candy.
I read something last night that wasn't meant for my eyes but I knew it was directed toward me and it was like a slap in the face. I realized that I'm doing everything I can not to experience my feelings because I don't know what to do with them and I don't know how to grieve without feeling like I'm going to lose my head.
So, how have the rest of you dealt with really serious emotional trauma?
