What Is Grief and How to Fight It With Therapy
Grief is a normal response when you lose someone. It’s the emotional damages you feel when someone or something you love is taken away. The more critical the loss, the more serious your grief will be. You may link grieving with the death of a family member which is usually the reason for the most extreme type of grief, but still, any loss can produce grief.
If you’re encountering symptoms of complex grief or clinical distress, talk to a professional therapist right away. If left untreated, complicated depression and grief may result in life-threatening health problems, vital emotional damage, and worst suicide. But treatment from a therapist can help you feel better.
Contact a professional therapist or grief counselor if you:
If you wish you had died with your loved one
If you are unable to do your normal daily activities
Feel like life isn’t worth living
If you are having a problem trusting others since your loss
If you blame yourself for the loss or for failing to prevent it
Feel numb and detached from others for more than a few weeks
