The Greiving Proccess
I ran across this online article which explores the greiving proccess. I hope it may be helpful to those in need. I will start this thread in hopes that others will post their favorite on-line web-links articles, stories or research, etc., to share with others.
I have taken both great comfort and sorrow in witnessing so many tell their stories here. In the past three years I have lost my father and mother to slow debilitating illnesses (emphzema and alzeimer's Disease), as well as having my brother take his own life. I can honestly say that I feel I have aged ten years in this short amount of time.
I remember an interview by former Beatle Paul Mc Cartney, in reference to the passing of his wife Linda. He said that he had many friends and well-wishers advising him shortly after her passing. They told him to keep busy,and essentially not to dwell on it. Paul said that for him, it was essential that he do the exact opposite. For over a month, he "emmersed himself in greif," as he put it. He dug up painful old memories, wrote them down in poetry, and basically brought himself to the lowest of lows. It was only then when he could come to grips and deal with the emotion of the loss and continue his life and develop future relationships with some resemblance of normalcy.
