Bereavement and grief are difficult reactions people experience after loss. Both encompass a wide range of emotions such as fear, anger, and deep sadness. The process of adapting to a loss can dramatically change from person to person, depending on background, beliefs, relationships, and other factors. Common symptoms of grief can be physical, emotional or social. Symptoms can include: Crying and sighing, headaches, appetite change, sleep issues, weakness, fatigue, sadness, yearning, worry, anger, frustration, guilt, isolation, detachment from others. Every grieving experience is different. You should not have to go through this alone. Please contact us for support!
