Unfortunately my grandma passed away early this morning. I was very close to her and loved her very much but I didn't cry at all when my parents told me this morning.
I feel a bit uncomfortable and guilty that I haven't displayed the emotions my siblings (both younger and older) have displayed by not crying. I was just absolutely shocked and in denial when i was told this morning.
has anyone felt the same?

Yes - when I lost my gran in November, I didn't cry. I certainly was sad though, and it did make me less focused on school work that week.

It isn't uncommon. We all process grief differently, and you may find that after some time has passed and the shock has subsided you do eventually have a good cry. You might not. There is no right or wrong way to act so don't be concerned that something is inherently wrong with you.

It probably hasnt hit you yet
And dont worry if you dont cry, people have different ways of coping with loss
Sorry to hear about your nan x

Not an issue at all, as the people said above we all process grief differently and have different reactions to it. I hope you feel better soon, and think of your grandma with happiness
