Yale University Grieving Study
In this morning's newspaper: Yale University has completed the first large-scale study of the five stages of grieving. The study has validated the five stages we have known of: disbelief, yearning, anger, depression and acceptance.
While those of us here currently suffering a loss might be in no frame of mind to look at the clinical aspect of grieving, it can help to reaffirm that the process we are experiencing is normal, though heartbreakingly difficult.

Best wishes to all.
