Some people hardly seem to grieve at all. They can avoid any mention of their loss, do not cry at the funeral and appear to return to their normal life remarkably quickly.
For some people this is just their normal way of dealing with their loss and no harm occurs. However others may suffer physical illness or periods of depression. Sometimes people get trapped in the grieving pattern. The sense of disbelief and shock can just continue and never seem to end, whereas others cannot think about anything else but the loss of their loved one.
Both of these instances can be damaging. If you feel you need help to get out of a repeating cycle, we have a list of support contacts. We would encourage you to take the next step by calling them.
