Many people experience a variety of intense feelings at this time. These may included:
Each experience is unique. Whatever your feelings, allow yourself time to grieve, to cry, and to talk about the emotions you feel. Do not expect too much of yourself.
Your family will also experience a wide range of feelings and may be unsure how to comfort and help you. Their feelings about the loss are different from yours but just as real.
Recovery from a loss like this can take a very long time, and some still feel sadness at special time each year.
