Been dealing with the loss of a friend lately and it's caused some battles with depression. I've taken a few days off work to try and straighten things out.

I never got to say goodbye to her and it has haunted me for 10 years, but having social anxiety I was able to keep it inside, it felt natural. I did not go to the funeral because of the anxiety and because I couldn't face the finality.

But now that I've started to recover form the anxiety, I've decided that it's time to say goodbye. I do not know where she is buried so I've had to call some old friends that were friends also at the time of her death. That is something I could have never done before that I don't feel nervous doing now.

I think I'm doing the right thing by finally saying goodbye and I know she can see me from above. I feel this is the start to a better life, time to let go of the things that I have felt so guilty for so I can move on.

Thanks for listening !!

:thanks
