Yes, sometimes I think I am crazy. But I am very good at faking it. If I were to show my true grief they would probably lock me up. It’s so hard to hold back the screams and wails that I can feel my blood boiling. Like when you get mad. I start pacing around, looking for her and needing her, but she is gone. So I silently pray that I don’t scream and wail because I’m afraid I might never stop. I just want my Katie. That is all I want. The only thing that makes it better is… Read more »

I scream and wail when I’m alone. I have to or I’ll explode. If I’m around someone, I’ll go for a drive, find some space. I hope u do too.

Yes at times and it’s not realistic to expect anything less.

Yes. My memory has gotten horrible I change moods quickly for no reason and just an still finding out who this new person is that I’ve become. But when I talk to other angel parents and see that are experiencing the same things it makes me feel better. I know I’m not alone in how I feel.

Most of the time I feel like I have already gone crazy! The loneliness crowds my mind and makes it hard to function. Eight months after losing my husband of 31 years the pain is still just as fresh and hurtful. All these emotions make it hard to think straight.

Yes I do… Somedays I can jump from being ok to a monster for really no good reason. I really don’t think I will ever feel “normal” again.

Yes I definitely felt like I was going crazy in the beginning for example I burned water at least 10 times with the pan on the stove empty hot dangerous. I’ve been making water for instant coffee and instead of putting the coffee in my cup with instant coffee in the pan of water. I definitely feel like I have to check everything twice before I leave my house like is the stove off is the blue curling-iron off. is very frustrating.

Hmm, we are 2 & 1/2 years out from the loss of our little boy. I am blessed to have found some peace and I’m able to function more like I used to, but I recently am finding myself feeling like I’m going crazy because my spouse cannot find any peace. In fact his depression is getting worse and that more than anything is making us both feel crazy because we are on what seems to be opposite ends. It is a vicious cycle, and it is taking a toll.

Yes a lot of days. If I didn’t have my family and grandchildren, I feel like I would.

Patricia Lopez

YES- I had to start a support group! I felt like I was losing my mind

Oh boy, such a loaded question. Maybe I am crazy. Not going, I might have already arrived. Nothing in my life is normal anymore. I wonder was this crack always just waiting to happen? Or was it simply the sudden shock I was thrown into when Michael, out of nowhere, just dies? How do you ever wrap your head around that? I can’t. Man this grief has done a real number on me. I don’t recognize anything about me anymore and my reactions to things seem to out of balance. Even though I really control (guard) my everyday life I… Read more »

Yes! At times, I do…Those times when I think if I don’t see him or hear him or feel his touch, I will go absolutely crazy and what’s worse, if he can’t come back here, then I want to go where he is. I find that living is just merely going through the necessary steps…I haven’t cleaned house since he died. I haven’t cooked since he died. I just don’t want to…and I don’t care. I know that God has a plan for me, and I’m trying not to ask why he brought me to Red and then took him… Read more »

Yes, at times I feel crazy!!!! It feels like I’m gonna just freak out mentally n emotionally n babble. Scares me. The stress of my loss, trying to b available for my girls’ feelings, supporting my grandson when he’s sad and trying to explain the unexplainable 💔

Yes I do feel like I am crazy. I also feel like I am going to explode. Sometimes I go outside and scream.

Jennifer Pond

Yes, in the beginning there were times when I felt like I would lose it. Not crazy, exactly, but more of “I’m headed for a breakdown”. I thought it would wind up putting me in the hospital. I tried reaching out to others, but it seemed to fall on deaf ears. There were times when I wanted to scream” this is killing me!!!!” just to get anyone’s attention and make them realize how bad it was.

Yep, I don’t remember things, I say things I don’t mean, I show anger quickly, I cry a lot, I don’t enjoy life as much as I should…yep that’s a sure sign I’m going crazy, isn’t it…

That’s a very interesting question to think about. I guess since I work with people with mental disabilities and “crazy” is a term we are not allowed to even recognize, it’s more like I feel insane. By definition, Insanity is doing the same thing, the same way, every time and expecting different results. I feel like I’m stuck in the world of Insanity. My mind knows this, but my heart won’t except it. I still have the same routine that brings me back to those horrible days, but I guess I’m scared if I try and move on or change… Read more »

No, I’m not crazy, I’m surviving the best i can. My perception of time is definitely distorted. I am clingy to my other children and my family. But i think these are normal reactions

Yeesss. It has been 7 long years since Drew died. I will never be the same. I accept that now. So many times I felt like I was a failure at Grieving. It was taking me too long. I was going nowhere. I was/am faking how I feel every day. I still feel like if I really let my tears out…if I start to cry, I WILL NEVER STOP. I feel lonely, yet can’t allow myself to feel. I am a nurse. This sounds like the definition of crazy to me. I feel like I need therapy, but there is… Read more »
