sexymama118:  I am so sorry you are feeling this way. I just want you to know that guilt is completely normal. I had a perfectly “normal” relationship with my grandparents and I felt so much overwhleming grief that I didn’t visit more, that I didn’t call more etc. It is part of the grieving process. And of course you have a right to be upset, you just lost someone close to you. I am sorry and sending many hugs.

I’m sorry for your loss. You have every right to grieve and be sad, try not to beat yourself up about the past and just cherish the good.

I felt the same way – in terms of the guilt. I can tell you that it doesn’t matter HOW MUCH you see them (I visited my grandpa several times a week, nearly daily), you still feel guilty for not seeing them more. There’s always something.

I feel for you, OP. Death is a hard thing, especially when it’s out of the blue.

Sweetheart, PLEASE forgive yourself with the knowledge that she loved you dearly, and she will ALWAYS be with you.

I always felt as though I’d spend lots and lots of time with my mom and dad after my baby was born, but 3 weeks after his birth, my dad dropped dead without warning. I honestly didn’t think I could survive losing him, but over time, I’ve come to realize that he’s still very near me, and shows me that he’s around!

Cherish your memories, and use your therapy to reconcile the hard thoughts. 

You are not alone!
