After losing my dog by brother and some others in the family want to push me into trying to do things or go places I am not ready to do or feel comfortable doing.  They truly don't understand how I feel.  I have to do what I can and when I feel ready.  Depression, lack of sleep, lack of energy take time to get back. Can anyone relate.  I hope that I am OK in feeling this way.  I just don't want to be pushed into doing things I am not ready to do.  I don't have a timetable for when I will be ready to do certain things.  I hope I am not alone in this.

What you are feeling is a normal response to the loss of someone you love.  I lost my kitten 3 weeks ago due to a tragic event and I was exhausted, depressed and I dragged myself through the day. Our family and friends are just trying to help but they are not experiencing our feelings, our grief and that makes things difficult for everyone involved.  You are correct, it's your grief and you need time to process it in your way and in your time.  Hang in there, everyone means well.  Your grief is recognized and respected here.  Do your best to take care of yourself.  My thoughts and support are with you.

Its the  worst thing that's happened to me, loosing my special girl Berry suddenly on new years eve. I can relate to how you are feeling. 5month on and I'm still crying for her, my partner says I should be moving on but everyone has their own way of processing bereavement and I need to take one day at a time. Since Berry's passing I have lost joy in many things, she was my joy , my life ! You take as long as you like in grieving , one day at a time. I wish you peace and love.

Exactly it feels like family and others push us to do things that we are not ready to do.  They may mean well but we have to do things when we feel comfortable.
