I am new to grief, my mom passed away not quite 2 months ago. I try and work through it by moving my body. I’m a runner….what I’ve noticed lately is that after every run I cry, I run, I cry. I’m so taken back by this. I feel as though I am doing the best I can, I talk about my pain, I see a psychologist, I do distract by shopping but the run/cry combo always catches me off guard. Maybe it’s guilt because she can’t run or walk this trail with me anymore. I don’t know! I wanted to share in case this is the same for others.
Thank you so much to Laura for this lovely submission. It is so realistic and an accurate portrayal of the ‘everyday-ness’ of grief.
