Feeling guilty

Hi Ladies,

I had to bury a friend yesterday who passed away from a rare & aggresive cervical cancer and I think I've got survivors guilt. Has anyone else ever had this?

I cry at the drop of a hat, I'm moody and not my usual self & I'm questioning why she died and I lived.

The funeral was very emotional and it bought back so many feelings thay I thought I'd dealt with but I don't think I have.

Any advice on how to deal with this?

    I am so sorry you have lost a friend. I think your reaction is perfectly normal and it's not surprising that it's bringing up upsetting feelings for you. It is just a journey with how we cope with loss and our own feelings of not being in control. I am hoping you are feeling a bit better today. As you know from how you feel about your friend, each one of us is valuable, loved and cared about. Hugs. Meg xxx
