After the loss of a spouse (death or break-up), family member, friend, or even pet, it is normal to grieve. Grief affects people in different ways. For most people, it is a way to adjust to life without the person they lost, and eventually they do adjust and move on. However, some people get “stuck” in their intense feelings of grief and are unable to move on to the point where their life is disrupted for a prolonged amount of time. They also may become seriously depressed or anxious.
