Sorry for your loss.

One of my best friends took his life back in 2017, so I can empathise to an extent.

It's a shock to the system (especially if it was completely out of the blue), and there will be so many questions in your head.

There's a grieving process you'll need to go through... you cant rush it, unfortunately. I don't know you, so I can't advise on specifics... but... whatever you feel you need to do, then do it. If you need to cry, then cry, if you want to talk about it, the poster above has already offered to talk (sometimes it helps offloading to a total stranger). Once you've been through it, you'll be able to live your life again (although it won't be quite the same).

Please do NOT keep things to yourself, or bottle up your feelings. Do you have something like a WhatsApp group with your friends? That could be an outlet for all of you and can be a way of communicating / supporting each-other during the lockdown. How well do you know her family? SOMETIMES it can help to visit them, but find out if they're OK with this before just turning up. We also helped out with some of the funeral arrangements (was our way of contributing)... Not sure how practical that will be given the current climate, though

Well now she doesn’t have any problems so take comfort in the knowledge she’s doing just fine and always will. We all have to end up there one day anyway. Nothingness doesn’t sound bad.

The absence of good things isn’t bad but the absence of bad things is good.
