Grief & Losswith Jeff Rose
Grief & Loss can lead to:
- Having thoughts that are dominated by the loss coupled with poor concentration, tearful spells, and confusion about the future?
- Having a strong emotional response whenever the loss is discussed?
- Experiencing symptoms of depression such as lack of appetite, weight loss, difficulty concentrating, and/or insomnia since the loss?
- Experiencing feelings of guilt that not enough was done for the lost one, or having an unreasonable belief of having contributed to the death in some way?
- Feeling the loss of a positive support network due to a geographic move?
Perhaps the unthinkable has happened to you. A special loved one has been torn from your life and you are heartbroken. I am so very sorry for your loss. You are in the midst of one of the most painful and trying experiences that a human can endure. No one can know the depths of your pain, but there is hope for the future.
You are in for the roller coaster ride of your life. It is the nature of the beast. Grief is not orderly and predictable. It will wax and wane. You may reach a period of relative calm, and a break from the tears. “What a relief” you’ll think, “Maybe I’m finally reaching the stage of acceptance”. And then, BAM! Brought to your knees again by intense grief.
It may help you to know that grieving is a process, a long journey of acceptance and healing. I know it is hard for you to believe right now, but you must hold onto hope, and keep in the back of your mind that things will eventually get better. Grief counseling can help.
