If you have volunteered to work with people affected by bereavement and been bereaved yourself did you find it a problem? Does the timeframe matter I.e how long ago the loss was?

I'm a bereaved parent and work with bereaved parents. Guidelines are 2 years post-bereavement until you work with others who are the same, although most people are farther on when they do.

Thanks expat just wondering if I would be strong enough to volunteer, don't want to become depressed or take on too much.
