I would appreciate any tips from EmpowHER members on how to grieve over the unexpected loss of a close friend. I just found lout last week that a very close friend of mine passed away unexpectedly. She was very young, only 36 years old. It was very shocking and unexpected. I have grieved the loss of grandparents and other friends or family that weren't so unexpected. Basically, meaning that we had time to prepare for the inevitable.
But with my good friend passing so unexpectedly, I am having a really hard time coping. The first 4 days I felt like I was in a haze and couldn't concentrate and was easily distracted. The next few days, I cried a lot and it started to really feel real.
The wake and funeral are taking place today and tomorrow. I would appreciate any advice on how to grieve or any other personal experiences the community is willing to share with me.
