When you’re worn out from pretending that you’re “back on your feet,” when friends and family are urging you to “get out more,” when you find it too draining to keep up with life’s many responsibilities, it’s time to seek help.
Sometimes the loss is another person–spouse or romantic partner, child, sibling, best friend. That person may have died, moved away, abandoned you, gone to prison, or suffered an illness so severe that she is gone to you while still alive.
Sometimes the bereavement is complicated; the one who died turns out to be someone radically different from the person you thought you knew. Confusion, resentment, betrayal, compound the loss.
Sometimes you lose a part of yourself. Unemployment, sickness, depression, infertility, chronic pain can alter your sense of self. Accompanying that loss is loss of a dream and even of hope.
Don’t let your grief overwhelm you. Call me today.
