When my father passed away 17 years ago, I couldn’t understand why my mother lost her filter and would say anything. Although she was known to speak her mind on occasion, this was a whole new level. Now I find myself doing the same thing. I hear myself saying stuff and I wonder where did that come from and why! I am over emotional…overreacting. It is an exhausting side effect of grieving that I wasn’t aware existed.
Now that I realize that it is grief, I need to figure out the best way to get a handle on this. I am worse when I am tired or sick. I am fighting a cold and ear ache this week.
