AN INTERVIEW WITH IOANNA ABOUT THE LOSS OF HER GRANDMOTHER IN ENGLISH
Joanna, are you a member of any social network like an educational, sports or any other kind of community that has helped you go through its difficulty of mourning for your grandmother? If yes, please define the frequency of your participation and if that relieves your loss in any way.
No, I'm not a member of any social community. I used to dance but our relationships in that group were not very close. So I've been supported only by my family and my husband.
I see. How have your friends supported you? In what way?
The period that I lost my grandmother and for a few months after that, all my friends were away, out of my hometown, because they did seasonal jobs. All of them worked on tourism on Greek islands during the summer season, so I didn't have them near in physical terms. But we talked every day over the phone. My husband supported me a lot during that difficult period. We talked a lot and that helped me. However, there were moments that I needed to be alone and that was fine too.
Did you feel better when you talked to friends or when you went through it on your own?
That depended on the time and the feeling of the moment. I think that you have to be alone at some point and discuss your problems and share them with others. It's important to share your memories and this is what I did with people who knew my grandmother.
So for you, the supportive networks were friends and family, right?
Yes, that's right, friends and family.
How has the loss of your grandmother influenced your life?
On the loss of my grandmother, I've lost a dear friend and I can't have the advice I used to have from someone who loved me and was always there for me. We used to talk every day and we shared all the problems, particularly my health problems. She heard always been there for me, every step of the way. So this is something I lost when I lost her.
What else do you miss about her apart from that?
I miss her smile, her encouragement and I miss her a lot.
How would you like to remember your grandmother? Please answer the question in terms of your grandmother's health, character, or your interaction with her.
I would like to remember her as happy as she was most of the time. I'd like to remember her the way she was on special occasions, at Christmas time, at Easter, on my name day, on all those special celebrations we shared.
Who was that person from your circle of family and friends who supported you most when you lost her? Any in particular?
Well, my grandma's daughter, my aunt, was definitely someone to lean on but above all was my husband.
What qualitative characteristic of your character would you mention as that quality of yours which was driving you through this difficult stage of your mourning?
Well, I think that my grandmother was really courageous as a person and dynamic, no matter what the difficulties were. I should mention that she had lost her daughter at a young age. And yet she proved to be very strong, despite. So I think that she inspired me.
I see. She was a role model for you.
That's right, she was the right role model for me.
I don't think I am as dynamic as her but I try to be.
What would you advise someone who is in the same situation as you in his life?
I would advise him or her to express herself, to express his feelings in the way he wants to. Every person has a different personality and perceives things differently, so it is difficult to advise anyone for this reason.
Thank you so much for this interview, Joanna. It's been most interesting to hear your point of view through your personal experience.
Thank you. It's been my pleasure to share it too.
