Losing someone you love or deeply care about can be a painful experience, the effects of which can last weeks, months, or even years after your loss. Bereavement, or the grief one feels after losing a friend or family member, is a normal reaction to a significant loss. In fact, bereavement is a natural and healthy way to cope with the pain of losing someone that, in time, can renew you and permit you to move on. Here is a closer look at some of the ways bereavement can manifest itself after the death of a loved one:
Shock and Disbelief
It can be hard, if not altogether impossible, to accept what has happened after you find out that a loved one has passed. You may feel numb to the tragedy, or even have trouble believing that the person you love is really gone. You may also sit around waiting for your loved one to walk through the door, even though you know he or she is gone.
Profound sadness is the symptom of grief that is most universally experienced. It is completely normal to feel sad, especially if the person was close to you or died an untimely death. Emptiness, despair, yearning, and deep loneliness are all common feelings one endures while grieving the passing of a loved one.
While most people think of grief as a strictly emotional process, bereavement can also manifest itself physically. Some of these physical symptoms include nausea, fatigue, weight loss or weight gain, aches and pains, and insomnia. If these physical symptoms persist or worsen over time, seek the guidance of a therapist or grief counselor before you put your own life at risk.
