Learning that a loved one has a chronic illness is devastating, and even more so if that illness is likely to cut their life short. Everyone deals with the death of loved ones different, the grieving process is varied and there is no wrong or right way to go about it. We've come up with a list of lessons we can take from mourning loved ones who have passed away (based on information from the Huffington Post and helpguide.org). Others May Grieve Differently Than You Everyone handles death differently, so even members of your immediately family may react differently to the passing of your loved one. Some may want to talk a lot about that person, others may want to avoid the subject, some may cry a lot, others may appear incredibly stoic. We each need time to internally process what has happened and come to terms with the news in our own way. It Takes Time to Heal Grief is a curious thing, often it hits straight away, but others may be able to continue life as normal for days, weeks or even months before they begin the grieving process. Allow yourself time to heal, know that you will go through a range of emotions from extreme anger, self-pity, guilt and sadness and that's OK. You will always miss your loved one, that will never change but you will come to a point where you can carry on with enjoying your life, just don't rush it.
