Thanks @Razzle I look forward to your reply.
Hey @greenpea I've had some events that I didn't grieve at the time or didn't show but I've found they've cracked open at a later time, often catching me totally by surprise. Do you think it's a survival thing protecting us at the time? When I look back I think some of the delay was because I was busy caring for someone else at the time and there was just no room for my own deep feelings to surface.
I've also had the experience of being really angry at the time or feeling someone was to blame (including myself) and not feeling sadness until much later.
I've found the one true thing about grief is that it has it's own timing and is largely out of our control.
