It has come and gone for years. Before she died was terrible because I knew she was going to be dying simply from 'old age'. Knowing she was as old as she was, I was hysterical anticipating her death. But years later I tapped into grief I had been supressing and it was the nightmare from hell when it came out. I was never so emotional about anything in my life in therapy. I truly thought I was having a nervous breakdown or mental breakdown getting in touch with the grief of losing her. She died in 1997 and I am still working on it. I am sorry I can't give you exact times because for some people that is helpful so they can kind of compare notes.
