Last week, a co-worker of mine that i work directly with suddenly passed away at a young age in his sleep. I only worked with him for 4 months, but he was a really great guy and there are only 5 of us in this office so we are all very close. Aside from his death, my fiance and I have had 5 other deaths in the past 2 years. All very close to us. The one that hit ME the hardest was my best friend since i was a freshman in highschool got hit by a car and died all alone. We were inseperable always together and this was and is still veyr hard to comprehend. The other were my fiances grandma, his step brother (also young), his friend and his aunt & uncle had baby and she lived for 5 days and passed away.
This most current death of my co-worker has been hard on me. I feel like i have slipped into a depression and cant get out. I dont want to do anything, my fiance said i am emotionally separated from him and our daughter, i have been sleeping a lot and crying suddenly and starting arguments for no reason at all.
It's strange to me that my co-workers death, although every death is tragic, has hit me so hard OR if i am still grieving the deaths i have had prior to his and this just hit it on the head.
I still have not came to an understanding of why people have to be taken away from their loved ones and their lives especially at a young age.
I dont know how to snap out of this emotion I am in. is it normal? does it seem that maybe i am still grieving everyone else that i lost in the past 2 years?
It's so hard.

It sounds like you are grieving. Every one grieves differently and it take everyone different lengths of time to get through. You might need counseling.

This is why you have to appreciate every day you are given & make the most of it. Love your kids & family with all your heart & let them know it. Unfortunately the older you get the more people around you die. It makes you very aware of your own mortality. My Dad passed last March & I am grieving myself. This week 5 other people I know passed away. All older people but it's like losing a part of you/your history. Hope you feel better soon.
