An abyss of grief.

My best friend died in April and I can barely function some days, so intense are my feelings of grief. It feels like an abyss. If anything, I feel worse than I did in the beginning. I miss her so much. I just feel so sad.

Hello Tracy and welcome to our Online Community. I am so sorry that you are struggling to come to terms with the death of your best friend. It may be that it’s only now you are seeing clearly how much she meant to you. Although you still have your family around you, you are missing that very special bond you shared together.
Are you able to let your partner know how you are feeling? It could help you to talk about your dear friend, and what an important part of your life she was. Perhaps you could have a chat with your GP, to explore what support may be there for you.
Thinking of you at this really tough time, Jackie
