The Bereavement Code: How To Survive Grief and Move Beyond the Loss of a Loved One (Paperback)
That Gut-Wrenching, Agonizing Feeling - Can You Make It Go Away?
When you feel like you can't go on and the pain of grief actually turns into a powerful physical ache... Is there a way to start recovering and going back to life as usual after the loss of a loved one?
The loss of a loved one always has a physical expression. There will be a huge void in your life that simply can't be filled.
Experiencing loss is a normal part of life that nobody can escape from.
When it happens, however, none of us feel prepared for the extensive, devastating consequences.
As important as bouncing back is, few have the skills to make it happen soon enough. For some, the process will take months, even years. Others will be riddled by anxiety, self-doubt and even feelings of guilt that eliminate chances of recovery altogether.
Did I do enough for them?
Did I say "I love you" often enough?
Was there anything I could have done to prevent it?
Questions that will never be answered....
Questions that can come back to haunt you time and time again.
These questions can lead to grief so overwhelming and powerful that it would seem to never end. In fact, 10 to 20 percent of grieving individuals experience this prolonged, life-altering sensation.
Dealing with grief in the absence of the right tools can feel like you're drowning in the deep end of the pool. In the first months after loss, 40 percent of people exhibit the symptoms of clinical depression. For 24 percent, the condition continues even longer.
Grief is characterized by many things that make it nearly impossible for us to function.
Shock. Denial. Despair. Anger. Confusion. Depression.
Coping with grief involves processing those emotions and finding a healthy outlet to accommodate for the major, unwanted life change.
