B) The first couple days have passed and it may seem like you arent getting any better. Stay strong.
Attempt to lay down at least a couple times a day and rest up as much as possible. Short naps help.
Try to take care of yourself. Showers may even seem the furthest thing from your mind just attempt to care for yourself.
As people surround you know your limits and dont be afraid to say ” NO” to things you dont want to do.
Its been a couple days and now maybe even a week. If there are any big decisions to make avoid them.
In most cases of murder, people in your community may lash out and have anger towards you. After a murder people always have to point a finger.

Get air and remember to breath. You are still in the first week. You are still very numb and cant eat, sleep, think, write or maybe even move. Its ok. Keep telling yourself ” Its ok” . stay strong nothing lasts forever, you will overcome these emotions as you enter into your next phase.

You’re taking life minute by minute srill working thorugh all these awful emotions. You can do it. Believe!
