Grief is a very scary road to ﬁnd yourself upon. When someone close to you has died, everything around you changes. The day-to-day activities which you once took for granted can be stripped away in a heartbeat. You may ﬁnd yourself feeling lost and alone. The feelings that grief stirs up makes many wonder if they are losing their minds.
Grief is especially hard for the parent who has lost a child. Losing a child is an out-of-order process. Children are typically so much a part of a parent's life that when they are gone, many parents struggle to move forward.
Similarly, the person who loses their partner through death is also likely to be particularly devastated. Not only is that person's spouse gone, but also, often, their lover and best friend.
The individual who has lost a loved one can ﬁnd that everything in their life is altered. Simple things such as meals, shopping and quiet evenings at home do not feel the same. But with time, support, and grief counseling people will begin the path back towards normaility.
Grief can also lead to other Mental Health Issues. It is a fact that people who experience deep grief are candidates for other medical issues. Grief can easily turn into depression and it can stay with the person for years, or a lifetime if not treated.
Anxiety is also an issue for many whose loved ones have died from an accident, or a sudden death. Fear can paralyze a person. They may constantly be looking over their shoulder waiting for something bad to happen.
