Loss and Grief
Losing a loved one can be a painful experience which can lead to a path of grieving. In this process people often feel alone and overwhelmed with intense emotions that can last for months or years. Along with emotional symptoms of sadness, people can also experience physical symptoms. Which can include headaches loss of appetite and sleep. If not treated in time it can lead to depression. Everyone experiences grief differently, it is not a linear process and there is no predictable time period for grieving. Grieving process should not be rushed and denied. Being patient with yourself, seeking support and acknowledging your feeling are some ways that can help you cope.
“People in grief need someone to walk with them without judging them.” Gail Sheehy
