Most hospices offer grief counseling for 13 months after a death so you should qualify. Call them right away. They should be able to help.
Take care,

Dear Munchkin,

My deepest condolences and sympathies on the passing of your beloved and cherished father. I'm so sorry for your loss. I know there is a lot of pain and sorrow. I know the grief is overwhelming and its hard to know when to ask for help. You can ask for grief counselling at anytime through work, school, the church or through the hospice group. Or try to access any community resources. Thinking of you. Sending you lots of hugs.

My husband died 7 months ago and I was very desperate -I couldn't function. The home care people who cared for him, offers bereavement counseling and having a talk once a week has been helpful and no cost.

I am so very sorry for your loss. Deciding when to seek grief counseling is your decision and the fact that you've even asked the question tells me you're ready.
While hospices and churches do offer grief groups, they are not necessarily professionals with extensive education and training. I recommend contacting the Association for Death Education & Counseling and accessing their list of professionals in your area.

I will probably be where you are soon. I pray that you get comfort soon. I am grateful that you will be able to get some help from the Hospice group. I think just talking with others will help. God bless you.

Now!, and whenever you feel it will help you! There's usually a free program through your personal insurance company, the hospital and hospice in which he passed as well. Don't wait, call them.

Grieving is an individual process, and yes, professional counseling can be needed should you feel the need. Join a group therapy session, get individual therapy, talk to friends, family, and whatever you do, don't allow anyone to tell you to "just get over it". My dad died when I was 11 yrs., and it is still hard to talk much about it. The anniversary of my mother's passing is Jan. 30th and it isn't as painful since I was caring for her when she had dementia. My husband's dementia has just about ended his life, and my emotions are extremely high, but he is my husband (a different relationship). So, do whatever you need to do to try and heal. My best wishes to your future!

Contact Hospice they have counselors and many offer bereavement support groups.
They are still there to help you PLEASE utilize their services.
If this does not help talk to your doctor about seeing a therapist or a counselor
