My daughter and I went to our first session of Grief counceling and hated it. I thought that since it is a group session that the first week they would take it easy on us and that we would get to know the other people a little better before we let it all out, but that wasn't the case. I was looking at the counselor thinking that there is no way that I am going to be able to talk about this yet. I waited until the end to share and managed to get through my little story when another person in the group said that "at least I got to say goodbe". She was compareing myself to her because her husband died suddenly. I literally wanted to throw my chair at her. You can't compare your grief to another persons. I may have got to say goodbye but I also saw him suffer. Sorry just venting.
