believe - I wish I could say I can relate to what you are going through right now. The grieving process is tough & so emotionally draining.
You mentioned starting therapy - I think that would be a wonderful idea. To have a professional help you deal with your mulitiple losses & someone to give you some much needed emotional support .
another thing that has really helped me is to journal & put your thoughts & feelings down on paper. just let the words flow out - don't worry about grammar, spelling, etc. sometime I write in full sentences & others I just write words, ideas whatever is in my head. I also pose questions to myself. I find going back later to re-read is helpful as well & give your perspective from where you were & how far you have come.
Maybe you could look for a "live/in person" support group to again help deal with your losses. Maybe a local church might be able to guide you.
And of course, you have always got an audience here if you need advice or just need to vent.
Lastly, I am sure it is easy to feel hopeless & not motivated in times like this. But it is important to take care of yourself - sleeping, eating, getting some exercise & not shutting others out.
Take care & you will be in my thoughts. . .
