  • you still feel like you've been punched in the gut because it's only been two days. it is normal to feel numb. you are too sad to feel any other emotions. find a counselor or psychologist to talk to. i'm very sorry for your loss.
  • Of course it's normal, hon. We all go through a strange gamut of feelings and emotions when we lose someone close to us.
  • Yes my friend it is normal; you are probably still in shock and it will take time to come to accept it so to speak.
  • It's normal and you'll probably want to get some help. The next step is grieving/pain/suffering, and that's worse. Dr. Roberta Temes describes in the book, "Living With An Empty Chair - a guide through grief" three particular types of behavior exhibited by those suffering from grief and loss. They are: * Numbness (mechanical functioning and social insulation) * Disorganization (intensely painful feelings of loss) * Reorganization (re-entry into a more 'normal' social life.) Sorry for your loss, good luck.
  • I'm so sorry. What you are feeling is completely normal. You will go through many emotions when you are ready for them, at the moment what has happened is still sinking in and it will take time for you to come to terms with it. I hope you have friends and family around who can help you through this very difficult time. My thoughts are with you.
  • You pretty much have been punched in the gut. Please go talk to a professional, you will be glad you did.
  • This is totally normal for such a traumatic experience. Some time from now-perhaps in a few months you will have the emotional response-you will see something and think: I'm going to tell her about this-& then it will hit you... It will take a year for the pain to significantly decrease. One thing you need to do is take all the B vitamins & C: you are under stress & water soluble vitamins leave the body in this situation.

  • Da Ben Dan, please accept my most heartfelt condolences on your tremendous loss. You must be devastated. In her research, Dr. Elisabeth Kubler-Ross identified 5 stages of grief. They are 1. denial 2. anger 3. bargaining 4. depression 5. acceptance http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kubler-Ross_grief_cycle What you are feeling or not feeling right now is completely normal. You are in denial. You will work through this. You will survive. Accept each stage of the grief process as it comes. Recognize it, and then let it pass. You have my prayers.
  • My condolences. I am so sorry for your loss, DBD. Know that you and yours are in my thoughts and prayers. The last thing on your mind should be questioning your emotions -- shock and grief have to run their own course.
