Grief & Depression
Grief and Depression are unwanted reminders of your loss and if after a period of time you’ve found that grief is stopping you from functioning normally, it may be that you’re suffering from depression brought on by your bereavement.
Everybody has their own way of experiencing and expressing grief, and with this in mind, each person will have their own natural pace of coming to terms with their loss. It’s inevitable that during the grieving process, periods of sadness and anxiety will take hold, while you come to terms with the reality of not seeing your deceased partner again.
However, this usually leads to a period of acceptance and a willingness to move forward again. If this is not forthcoming and the depression persists, it may be necessary to seek professional help to ensure you’re getting all the support you need.
Talking with a doctor and/or grief counsellor will enable you to reveal what is stopping you from moving forward and explore any underlying emotions that may yet to be expressed.
