My Nanna died on 15th August and her funeral was yesterday and I just don't know what to do. I miss her so much. We used to talk everyday and I would try to see her once a week. Sometimes I'd cook her a nice Sunday lunch to make sure she ate properly. She was such a fiercely independent woman that she should've gone into a home long ago but refused. She never complained about the pain she was in and would always listen to me. I feel like I've lost my best friend.

I try to be understanding about my mums grief and my dads too (since he knew her for so long) but, especially since the funeral) they become annoyed with me if I get upset or angry and I don't think it's fair. I need help too.

I read out a poem yesterday at her funeral and I think it helped me, because her friends said afterwards that she would've been proud of me for doing it. We had people back to Nanna's house for food and drink and I worked very hard to be a good hostess and talk to people whilst my mum and dad stayed in the kitchen or having a cigarette outside. I think my parents thought I was 'over it' because of this, but I did it because my Nanna was an old-fashioned girl and knew how to entertain her guests so I couldn't let her down.

As I'm writing this I'm in bed in the dark crying my eyes out and no one has come to find me. I keep going to ring my Nan to talk about it!

I don't really know what I'm looking for in response to this but thanks for reading if you've made it this far!
