Grief & Loss
Losing someone or something deeply important is a tragic part of life. Feelings of love, hurt and sadness mix with other emotions like anger, guilt and confusion. The body reacts with discomfort, pain or numbness. The grieving process is difficult and draining. Our ability to take care of ourselves, our home and others may decline. When grief and loss is overwhelming or prolonged, serious concerns can arise.
Common Grief Concerns:
- Intense emotions and mood swings
- Mental and physical fatigue
- Appetite, pain and sleep issues
- Constant thinking about loss
- Loss of enjoyment and motivation
- Social and activity withdrawal
Grief and Loss can contribute to suicide or self-harm risk. If you or someone you know requires urgent help, please call the
Distress line at 780-482-4357 (Edmonton) or 1-800-232-7288 (Rural).
Loss is a natural part of life we all experience and grieve differently. Grief is a personal healing process, more difficult when we aren’t supported effectively, or complications add to pain. Being stuck in a state of grief prolongs suffering. An empathetic space allows us to move through grief safely and begin the new normal.
