How should I be dealing with my grief and pain after losing my daughter in a crash caused by a drunk driver?
Grieving is a natural reaction to suffering the sudden death of a loved one. Anytime anyone loses someone they love, grief tends to follow. Although this is a normal response after losing someone you love, grieving may make you feel unlike yourself. You may be angry, devastated, emotionally numb, confused, depressed, and you may even have lower self-esteem.
If you find yourself frequently crying or constantly thinking about the loss of your daughter, it is important to recognize that grief is a journey. It is okay to grieve in order to heal. You need to take one day at a time and know that you are not expected to be completely healed and whole ever again. Although time may help you get better, the loss of your daughter will always hurt and leave a scar.
This is why it is important to seek professional help to make sure you are dealing with your grief in the right way. Many bereaved parents go to counseling and also join support groups in order to take a step forward.
