My mom passed away unexpectedly two months ago, two weeks after I had officially finished my first year of grad school. I returned to school two weeks after her death to take a class. I made it through the class, but I find it is a continual struggle. I have lost all focus and motivation. I don't care about my project or my degree, and some days it is a challenge just to get up and go to my office. My mom and I were extremely close, and I know she would want me to continue on. It is one thing to know this, and an entirely different thing to be able to do so. While I am not thinking of dropping out, (I really don't see that as an option) I'm also not sure how to go on. I'm just wondering if anyone else has had a similar experience, and if it gets any better. Thanks.
