My girlfriend of 2 years just recently died of cancer a few days ago. I'm having a hard time. Is there anything I can do? Have any of you been through this?

OMG, I'm so sorry! I would say don't isolate yourself & maybe just chill with family. Go to counseling if you need it. Work on projects to distract yourself. You shouldn't hold it all in though.1

This is so sad. My sis and I lost our dad about 10 years ago. Mum was in a zombie like state for months. Itwas only us kids that kept her going.
There's no right answer to your question. Hopefully you can stay in contact with her family to help each other through this. Take things as they come. You probably won't feel like doing much, if anything. If you feel the need to shed a tear or two, don't be embarassed. It's nothing to be ashamed of, and is part of the healing process. It will become easier in time, but it may never leave you. You will learn to live with it, just as my family has. Do you have any close friends or family that can be very close to you at night? In many cases, night time is when the going gets toughest and it's so much better if you can reach out to someone just to know they are there.
I wish you safe journey on the long road to hapiness. It's long and tiresome, but you will get there.1
