Grief is a part of life. We all experience grief at some time in our lives. It is a natural response to loss, which can affect us deeply.
Grief can be associated with a variety of losses such as loss of relationships, death of a loved one, or the end of a stage in life. It may also stem from grief at the loss of your purpose or role in life.
Untreated grief can lead to physical and emotional health issues, grief-related addictions, grief-related caregiving, grief-related depression or grief-related anxiety. Untreated grief can also lead to the development of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
Grief is expressed in many ways and can affect every part of your life including your emotions, thoughts, physical and mental health.
For some, grief is hidden as we attempt to cope with the painful feelings and carry on with life as normal. For others, grief can be a debilitating and deeply paralysing experience as we come to terms with life in a new way.
