i've been given the advice to just let myself be myself, let myself just feel what i am feeling, and i was able to do this for a couple of days but now i don't want to anymore. i am sad, angry, and not wanting to feel it. i let myself feel some of my hurt over my loss, and i want no more. i don't want the pain and the sadness. i want it to go away.

how bad does it have to get before it gets better? how will i know when the worst is over?

I think that's normal. It is difficult to grieve anything 24/7. It exhausts you to do that and eventually you need to shut down emotionally for a while. This seems to be a natural way of getting respite from the intense distress that one feels after a loss.
