You know how when you are on holidays you lose track of time and perhaps go about your day
aimlessly not checking the calendar or even your watch? That happens when you are grieving
too. The downside is that your sense of time and space are not distorted because you are
relaxing and having fun. Instead, it feels like you are going crazy!
Not remembering what day of the week it is, what time of day it is or if an event happened
recently, are all common experiences following the loss of a loved one. Your mind has shut
down from the stress and the mundane day-to-day things just get lost in the shuffle. Be patient
with yourself. Like so many other emotions you can experience on this journey, the distortion
of time is temporary.
Time will march on and moment by moment you will get stronger and stronger. One day you
will be completely caught off-guard because you will realize that your every thought is no
longer consumed with what has happened. This too is normal and a part of the process.
