So on April 30th of this year, my mother passed. I was always close with her and she could always help wether it be advice about friends or studying for vocab quizzes, she was always there for me. I'm fifteen right now, and it's just me, my brother and my dad now. (Three boys no girls) I have never connected well with my dad, it's always been my little brother and my dad, and my mom and me. My mom was the type of person who could tell stories for hours and hours and you wouldn't be bored for a minute. Everything is really hard, my brother has learning problems and social problems, so he doesn't completely understand what it all means. He has a therapist and the whole thing, and it really stresses my dad out. I haven't been doing well, school is ten times harder to focus and putting a fake smile on every day really sucks. I don't have anyone to go to for advice, so I thought here would be a good place to ask: What are some things you can do to cope with losing a loved one?
