The Normal Reactions of Grief

(6:30)

Physical symptoms, religious reactions, depression, and detachment are some of the things  that Doug Manning discusses as being normal reactions of grief.

“I thought I could describe a state; make a map of sorrow. Sorrow, however, turns out to be not a state but a process.”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed
I realized that it was not that I didn’t want to go on without him. I did. It was just that I didn’t know why I wanted to go on.”
Kay Redfield Jamison, Nothing Was the Same
“I feel a flash of grief so intense it almost makes me cry out: not for what I lost, but for the chances I missed.”
Lauren Oliver
