Are your dreams shattered?
Is the pain inside deeper than you have ever known?
Do you wonder how you can go on?
Grief and loss can have a paralyzing affect in which you don't know what to do. Life seems to have stopped, yet others keep on living. It may seem like there is no hope and you will never be normal again. Life as you have known it has been swept right out from under your feet. Of course, you are having a hard time just functioning. If you or someone you know is thinking of suicide or having thoughts of ending a life, get help now. Call 9-1-1 or 1-800-273-8255.
Some people may tell you, "get on with life," or "you have so much life left," or "just give it time and you will get over it." You may feel disconnected and lonely. Even your relationships with friends have changed. You may also notice some other symptoms "normal" to grief and loss.
- exhaustion, fatigue
- sadness, teary eyed, depression
- difficulty with concentration
- multitude of changing emotions
- a weight or burden feeling upon you
