Grief impacts us in many different ways. Your grief will be uniquely yours and unlike the grief of others. This makes sense because your relationship with the person that died was unique. People often grieve different losses in very different ways. For example, people will grieve the death of a spouse or partner differently than the grief they experienced after the death of a parent or sibling. Below are listed some common grief responses.
fatigue, headaches, stomach aches, restlessness, hypersensitivity to noise, changes in sleeping, eating and sexual desire patterns
sadness, anxiety, relief, fear, out of control, loneliness, pride you were able to provide good care, crying, yearning, vulnerable, anger, guilt
difficulty concentrating, forgetfulness, confusion, difficulty focusing
comfort in one’s faith community, a sense of betrayal or abandonment and even anger with God or the world, a shattering of assumptions about life and one’s place in it
