Grief differs based on who we are, whom we have lost, and how much our daily life is affected by the death or loss. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and while we typically think of the emotional reactions, people can also experience grief through physical and behavioral symptoms. Some typical grief responses include feelings of shock, depression, guilt, loneliness, and anger; physical reactions including headaches, fatigue, and sleeplessness; and behaviors including excessive crying and withdrawal. Talking with a caring professional can help you process these emotions and develop effective strategies to cope with the realities of a painful loss.
