Grief and Loss

Grief is an intense emotional reaction that often accompanies major loss .The types of emotions experienced while grieving are varied and differ from person to person.  For example, some people experience extreme fatigue or irritation, while others have difficulty concentrating on everyday tasks.  While these are all normal feelings to experience when suffering a loss, they should not persist for an unreasonable amount of time. Grief that lasts for more than 2 months and is severe enough to interfere with your daily life may be a sign of complicated grief and more serious illness, such as major depression. If you find yourself feeling hopelessly stuck, using alcohol or drugs to avoid feeling, or simply feeling like you can’t go on, you should seek help from a counselor, pastor, and/or support group.
