Grief varies based on who we are, the losses we have sustained, and the types of connections people have with others. Grief is a normal reaction to loss, and while we typically think of the emotional reactions, people can also experience grief through physical and behavioral symptoms. Some typical emotional grief responses include feelings of shock, depression, guilt, loneliness, and anger. Physical reactions may include headaches, fatigue, and sleeplessness. Behavioral grief responses can include excessive crying, withdrawal, risky behaviors, etc. Talking with a caring professional can help you process these emotions and develop effective strategies to cope with the realities of a painful loss.
