Grief & Trauma
Grief and Trauma is another form of loss that is not well understood in our society and some people try to deny-it postpone-it or avoid-it.
Some people become angry, some people withdraw into themselves, and some people become completely lost in their lives and find it difficult to move-on with their lives.
Grief can occur not just after the death of a loved one but also after divorce, separation, miscarriage, stroke, disability moving home or redundancy. Sometimes grief may trigger mental health conditions such as panic & anxiety fear of the future which may also lead to depression and the feeling of isolation
These are some of the feelings that describe the different stages of Grief & Trauma:
Shock and feeling lost
Being in a daze
Overwhelming sadness and busting into tears.
Tiredness & exhaustion
Anger (towards all those close to you)
Guilt (feeling of guilt about t something you said or didn't say)
Shock and numbness (this is usually the first reaction to the death, and people often speak of being in a daze).
