I feel like the trauma from the months leading up to my dad's sudden death and the trauma of the death itself are holding me back from being able to actually experience my grief. It's as if all my feelings are just out of reach. When I start to feel anything, a sudden wall is slammed down and I don't feel it anymore. I've started therapy to try to address the trauma, but I really feel at a loss. I WANT to feel the grief and cry and mourn. But I'm terrified of the anxiety and memories of the trauma. Does anyone have any advice for making space for grief despite the trauma?
