Well when you think things can't get any worse had 2 policemen knock on my door at 2 pm to tell me my dad had died had to go tell my sister and his grandchildren phone my son in who's on holiday phone relatives and didn't really take anything in
Then phoned police my dad lives 4 hours from as it was an accident he was knocked off of his bike to find out he's been knocked off his bike by a drink driver I am so angry how can someone be so selfish so now can't calm down
I am not sure I will be able to cope with all it entails I am next of kin
At least now I have a reason to be sad

I am so sorry to hear that. Can you phone your doctor today and maybe ask for some extra support. It sounds like you need a bit more back up now. Did you manage to get any sleep?

I felt the same with my first appointment, I think it's a normal response. But if they are a good psychiatrist you won't regret it st all. This s such a brace stepmdot you tight now, takes courage and strength to heal, and you have so much on your plate right now, but remember day by day, moment by moment, or you'll burn out even more than you have already.. all the best once again, enjoy your day as best you can, considering your dealing with funeral and all other things.
