Grief is a natural response to loss.

It might be the loss of a loved one, relationship, pregnancy, pet, job or way of life. Other experiences of loss may be due to children leaving home, infertility and separation from friends and family. The more significant the loss, the more intense the grief is likely to be.

Grief is expressed in many ways and it can affect every part of your life; your emotions, thoughts and behaviour, beliefs, physical health, your sense of self and identity, and your relationships with others. Grief can leave you feeling sad, angry, anxious, shocked, regretful, relieved, overwhelmed, guilty, isolated, irritable or numb. It can impact on concentration and memory and  cause difficulty thinking about anything else other than the loss.

Grief has no set pattern. Everyone experiences grief differently. Some people may grieve for weeks and months, while others may describe their grief lasting for years. Through the process of grief, however, it is natural for you to begin to create new experiences and habits that adapt to your loss.

Grief is something that takes time to work through.

While everyone finds their own way to grieve it’s important to have access to support and to talk about your loss when you need to. Grief can lead to feelings of intense sadness, insomnia, headaches, feeling tired all the time, muscle aches, nausea, poor appetite and weight loss. If you notice that your grief begins to get in the way of how you live, work, share relationships or live day-to-day, then it’s important to get support or professional help.
