Other-worldly

Below is a quote from Dr. Leeat Granek in Slate Magazines’, What Grief is Really Like, series. It really stood out to me.  The expression of devastation is how I often feel.  Yes I knew it would be hard, but the grief seems almost other-worldly.  I find it comforting to know I’m not alone in this feeling.

 “When my mom died, I couldn’t ride two subway stops without sobbing. I knew it was going to hurt, but I didn’t know it was going to devastate me. “
