  •  very true. When my mother passed, I was all (3+ / 0-)

    business from the time I was told she was gone until the day we had her service. The following weeks, I was inconsolable. I didn't cry until after all the formal arrangements had been performed. I even held her hands as her nail technician painted her nails for the viewing. Never cried. But the following weeks, I'd breakdown at random times throughout the day. It was strange because during those first few days, I was proud of myself for handling it so well only to find out that I was just holding it together for my father. Once the obligations were finished, I just had a breakdown. And now it's been 6 years but there are still days when I will just start crying thinking about her but I think that goes with any loss.

    It is just a matter of how you personally react to stress.
