    It sounds like you are grieving - what a terrible loss to have to endure! A whole range of intense feelings, including anger, are to be expected as a normal part of the grieving process. You may benefit from someone to talk to - perhaps counselling might provide a space where you can be supported to work through some of your feelings about what has happened. There are groups that provide support to bereaved family and friends too - it can be helpful to spend time with other people who have gone through something similiar, who understand what it is like and can 'get' where you are coming from. If you are in Victoria, the Centre for Grief and Loss offers these groups - http://www.grief.org.au/ACGB/Bereavement_Support/Support_Groups/ACGB/Bereavement_Support/Support_Groups_2/Support_Groups.aspx

    All the best and please take very great care of yourself!
