Coping with the death of a loved one.
The death of someone close to you can feel overwhelming. People can have many different sorts of feelings and reactions.
Typical responses include shock, denial, numbness, anger and even relief. Some people even suffer physical symptoms such as a lack of sleep, a decrease or increase in appetite, headaches, a lack of energy and picking up bugs and illnesses.
But there is no wrong or right way to grieve. Your experience may be different, and it is ok to have these feelings.
During such times, it can be helpful to find people and places that can support you emotionally with your grief, as well as help you deal with the practicalities.
