Problems functioning in daily life
Disbelief or Shock
Death is inevitable. Still yet, the loss of a loved one always produce strong emotions of grief and despair. The pain can be extremely overwhelming and last a long time. While painful experiences are normal during this time, your emotions may feel trapped on a non-stop rollercoaster. Just when you feel like life has returned to normal, something reminds you of your loved one and the intense, heart-breaking anguish returns.
The first step is to learn about grief. What is normal and what isn’t? Here are some of the normal emotions following a loss. Grief can be caused by many things besides the death of a loved one. It is also normal to grieve when a pet dies or when going through a divorce. These events can be just as devastating for some people as the death of a family member. For most people, grief will let go eventually. But, sometimes, mental pain and anguish won’t relent. When grief doesn’t go away, it is known as persistent complex bereavement disorder (complicated grief). In persistent complex bereavement disorder, the emotional symptoms are so severe and deeply-rooted that you have trouble moving on from the loss and living your own life. So, how do you know if you are suffering from a normal reaction to grief or something more?
