shubom Posted June 2, 2006 Report Share Posted June 2, 2006 It's been 5 months since my mom passed. It's been an emotional rollercoaster and I'm trying to learn how to better balance myself. Lately, I've noticed that when people ask me how I'm doing, I always say I'm doing fine. And I don't cry as much anymore. Because of this, sometimes I think I'm ok. But there are times when I've noticed that after they ask, they stick around for a few minutes talking, and that's when I can't handle it anymore and the tears well up. I guess what I'm saying is, it feels like I put on a fake mask that only lasts for 1-2 minutes. Anytime after that, the mask starts to melt away, and the tears pour out. So am I being fake to my emotions? Am I dealing with my grief correctly? What am I feeling ! I can't pinpoint it. Why is it so complicated !
