The grieving process

Grief is a shocking and bewildering experience and not something to be
‘got over’ in a matter of weeks or months. Grief is a long and individual
process, and no two people ever experience it in the same way.

Grief itself isn’t an illness. It’s normal for a bereaved person not to feel
 normal. He or she will frequently become sad, relieved, angry, forgetful,
calm, bad-tempered, cheerful, despairing, anxious and exhausted… possibly
all on the same day.

Although people are individuals and mourn in different ways at different
times, there are recognised stages of grief. Not everyone will go through
them all, but the following are the most common. They do not necessarily come
 in this order, and they often overlap.
