This was me 3 years ago. I feel for you. When my boys' dad died unexpectedly, I made an appt. w/ hospice for free grief counseling. My oldest went, but my middle son backed out. Since he was an adult, I couldn't force him. All I could do was be there for him when he wanted to talk. It took him a long time to work thru the grieving process. Sometimes I think he's still working thru it. Everyone is different & the amount of time it takes them to work thru things is different. It's so hard when our children are in pain & we are powerless to make it go away. You will need lots of patience, & maybe your own grief counseling to help you thru. *Hugs*

Maybe she's depressed. Everyone mourns differently. Give her space & tell her that you understand how she feels & that you are there to talk when she needs to. Have you gone over to see her in person? Maybe stop by & bring lunch or ask her to go out for the day. Has she said that she is upset?
