Did this really happen? No… really? I can’t accept that - no. Whether this is hours or weeks, it may come upon you in varying degrees. How did they die? What was our relationship like? The level of numbness you feel after you’ve lost someone may be directly attributed to the answers to the above questions and statements.
Family and friends can help us come through this stage into a period of mourning at the funeral or similar gathering.
Some people feel physical pain as great waves of grief wash over us and cannot seem to pass us. A pain that fills us completely and may push us to withdraw. The difficulty in sleeping and possible feelings of being lonely and upset may also cause us to question our mortality and our own death in the future.
Once we understand and acknowledge our grief, the journey commencing with the pain of losing someone eventually turns into a journey of developing memories of fondness. The person we have loved is never forgotten and as we begin to find ourselves again, we begin to move away from breaking down memories of the past and moving forwards into a positive future.
The amount of time each of us suffers during these stages is unique and is also affected by the relationship we had with the loved one lost. Even as we recognize that our lives will never be the same after the event, most of us can find our desire to participate in life again following our periods of mourning and intense grief.
If you feel you can’t get to this stage without help, please don’t hesitate to seek professional help.
