Yesterday, reading a post on grieving in a friend's journal, triggered a spasm of howling and gnashing of teeth.
Somehow, thinking about the concept of grief is itself much more painful than contemplating Penny's death. This is weird and makes my brain hurt.

The post stated, basically, that grief isn't something you get over, it's something you learn to live with.
This made me think a bit: it's not an injury, you don't heal from it. It is, in fact, the tool you use to heal from injuries that aren't physical. If those injuries heal. If not, then the grief remains present.

I've been crying a lot lately too. I think I'll never get past this. :(

I think maybe the hardest thing about grieving for the people we've lost is that the loss is an incurable injury. It won't go away, it just has to be endured, and worked around.

It's really difficult to rebuild a life, especially when it has to be built on top of the old one.
