Loss is difficult to cope with. Often we are told that there are stages of grief, and after a set amount of time has passed that we should just feel better. Nothing changes, the loss is permanent, yet we are expected to pack up our grief and "move on". Grief, loss and bereavement are not unique to death. When someone is diagnosed with an illness, they grieve the loss of their health. When we experience any kind of trauma, we grieve the loss of control and security we experience in that moment. The only way to understand our grief, is to work through it and give ourselves adequate time and space to process and heal.
