I can fully understand your grief, I have lost both my parents and my husband. With coronavirus people aren't visiting people in their own homes but you might like to try finding out if CRUSE who are grief specialists. www.cruse.org.uk

I had them come to me and help me. They suggested that I used all sorts of techniques to help me come to terms with the grief. Talk about her and tell us about her. What sort of woman was she, and how close were you? and more than that.

As for schizophrenia, its not necessarily something you will get. You say you have no signs of it now so I doubt you will get it because of the grief you are experiencing. Grief is almost physical it hurts so much. There is a great big "hole" in your life which was mother shaped in the past. It feels intense and at times even frightening. But we are here to support you through it every step of the way. Its a journey and there is an end to it. You don't "get over" grief you learn to live with it.

ditto to what Calypso said

handling your feelings in a healthy way
will go some way to protecting your mental health definitely

I would pay attention to my feelings of grief
for some of the day, and then ask myself for some distraction
because not health to be in my feelings all the time
