Subject: RE: BS: Shaking Death
If your grief, 6 years later, is PREVENTING you from living your normal life, see a shrink. If your normal life, while you live it, reminds you of your lost loved one, that is a part of normal life. The times you actually weep, are they getting fewer and farther between, even if not very quickly? Do some things that used to break you up completely now just make you tear up? All those are signs of a (psychologically) healthy grieving process.
And if you didn't write the parents at the time, my advice is write them now. It will make feel they are not the only ones still cherishing their lost loved one.
