I thought I understood grief, until my spouse of nearly 40 years died of cancer. Now I am closer to understanding. Its intensity can be frightening and overwhelming. You may experience sorrow, anger, and a sense of abandonment. Grief can impair your ability to think, concentrate, and problem solve. There are many physical reactions to grief, such as aching muscles, nausea, fatigue, or insomnia. Small things can trigger an outpouring of emotion, which is exhausting. It is crucial for you to allow yourself to experience all of these reactions, rather than to suppress or deny them.
There are many paths to processing and resolving your grief. If you are experiencing frustration and difficulty in doing so, I can help you. You do not have to take on this arduous journey by yourself. I can provide you with a private, safe, and confidential setting in order to make healing steps forward.
