    Grief & Bereavement

    Bereavement refers to the process of recovering from the death of a loved one, and grief is a reaction to any form of loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger, guilt, and deep sadness.

    The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on his or her background, beliefs, relationship to the person who’s passed, and other factors.

    Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional, or social.

    A few common symptoms include:

    Physical

    • Crying and sighing
    • Headaches
    • Loss of appetite
    • Difficulty sleeping
    • Weakness
    • Fatigue

    Emotional

    • Feelings of sadness and yearning
    • Feelings of worry or anger
    • Feelings of frustration or guilt

    Social

    • Feeling detached from others
    • Self-isolation from social contact

    Everyone’s grieving experience is different. A person may be able to continue their day-to-day routine after one loss, yet not be able to get out of bed after another loss. Whatever your personal experiences are, grief and bereavement counseling can help.
