Grief is the way we express our loss. It is made up of the many different feelings we experience when someone dies. We may experience shock, numbness, disbelief, anger, guilt, frustration, yearning, loneliness, depression, feelings of “why me” or denial. Crying, feelings of extreme sadness and talking about the person who died are the most common ways we grieve. Grief is very complicated and takes many forms. Some people are very frightened of strong, unfamiliar feelings and believe they cannot cope.
