I am so deeply sorry for your loss. I hope your pain eases.

Thank you, I'm laughing at stuff like this at least. Grief is weird sometimes.

Grief is just the most absurd and chameleonic emotion. I can't say it's any one thing, truly - in any given moment it might be minimal, it might be overwhelming and crushing waves, it might be funny, it might feel fine and it might feel like you'll never recover. I feel it in my chest so strongly when it's acute. Being able to laugh is strength, even if it doesn't feel like it.

Chameleonic is such a good descriptor for grief! I cannot predict how I'm going to feel from one hour to the next. Just got to keep riding those waves.

I hope wherever you are on your journey that it's kind as it can be to you.

I just lost my Dad recently and this is so accurate. It also brings up old grief as you manage the fresh. Ridiculous and important but also just so difficult.
