NAVIGATING LIFE AFTER A LOVED ONE’S DEATH
The grieving process, while different for everyone, usually lasts from six to twelve months. During that time, it is likely that those who have lost a loved one will experience a deep sadness and feelings of regret. It is also common to vividly recall memories with the deceased, along with mental images and even the sound of a loved one’s voice. These recollections may trigger emotions such as remorse, guilt, and even anger, which can lead to fatigue and general agitation. Some people respond to loss by withdrawing and becoming irritable. As feelings tend to ebb and flow, grief-stricken individuals come to understand that dealing honestly with loss helps them to accept the reality that they face.
