The most painful event in life is the death of a loved one. Grief is a natural reaction to loss which can affect us both emotionally and physically. But everyone reacts differently. In order to heal, we need to accept the pain. We need to know what and how to communicate as we express our feelings. This is the path that allows us to move forward to healing in a healthy and timely manner. Remember a death is never easy to deal with. Should you, a family member or friend become overburdened at any point following a death, please see a doctor.
