Mental Block

Last Update: November 01, 2017

My family has suffered a great loss. This is very hard to write. My brother passed on October 19th, 2017. We were very close. I feel like I am losing my mind with grief.

I thought if I just kept working I could get past feeling this way, so I tried. I have found myself (on numerous occasions) sitting in front of my computer with WA on my screen trying to figure out what to do next. Staring at my screen for hours, not moving. I will read the lesson and have to read it over and over because I can't remember a thing.

I really want to pick up the pace, my brain isn't cooperating. I need to publish my site. I am trying to be positive. I have moments of clarity.

I need help, I am reaching out to the community to see if anyone knows how to get past this mental block. I don't have the convenience of time. I would appreciate any and all help.

So sorry, Christina. My younger brother passed away August 6th. There's no easy button for this. I've seen my brain fog increase as a result. But, it's getting better and I'm determined to live to honor his memory. I'll be praying for you.

Journal the hurt Christina and send prayers at the end of each day. Praying for the hurt to go away!

First of all, let me say I am sorry for your loss. My condolences to your family.

You may not be able to do what you want to do. You have to grieve. There is no way around this. I often work with grieving people. Allow yourself to grieve, it really is the healthiest thing you can do.

Things you might try: Write a letter to your brother. This will get you writing. No one ever has to see what you've written. So you can really express what you are feeling.

Another thing you might try is to journal your feelings. Sometimes when you see what you are thinking it helps gain perspective.

Whatever you do, you are going to have to do it in your grief. If your grief does not allow you to write, then do what your grief does allow you to do.

If you have any questions, or if you just want to vent, you can message me.

Take care.
