“It’s my second day back at work since my Mother died. I’m constantly switching between wanting to mourn and wanting to be productive. Everyone knew my Mother and loved her and she was one of the best in our region (I work the same place she did) I feel like everyone else is adjusting at an acceptable pace and I’m sort of lagging behind. I have to relearn a lot of stuff and it’s not going as fast as I want it to be.”
