Grief is the normal reaction to loss. Grief hits us physically, emotionally, cognitively, and spiritually. For awhile it takes over and nothing is the same. Simple tasks are hard. Sleep is elusive. Food is unimportant. Concentrating or focusing is no longer possible. Crying is easy. Understanding what happened is impossible, yet we try to make sense of it anyway.
When caught in grief — reach out to friends, family, support groups, and/or counsellors. Grief is not meant to be gone through alone. It hurts too much.
