So this isn't angry vent-ish, but more like I don't know what to do and just need to talk I guess.
I just found out that a family friend (and one of my mom's best friends) died. She hung herself, and her funeral is today. I wasn't as close with her as my mom was, but I used to tutor her daughter throughout high school and she gave us a nice gift for our wedding just a few months ago. Her other daughter is 3 months pregnant, and she supposedly was excited to be a grandma. I don't know what happened. My mom talked to her the day before she suicided, and they had made plans for the next day.
My mom is someone who never talks about her feelings and tries to keep everything to herself so she doesn't have to talk about it, and also to protect us I think. We only found out about this because my sister called my parents at the viewing last night and they accidentally picked up the phone (sis and I both live out of state, so we wouldn't have known for awhile otherwise). I haven't talked to my mom yet, but I don't know what to say to her. She doesn't let her kids comfort her, and it's a weird dynamic.
I feel really bad and helpless in regards to my mom. I don't know what to do to help. Plus, I'm sad. What can I do? Thanks for listening if you've made it this far.
