Grief support

When grief doesn’t go away

During grief, more commonly right after the loss of a loved one, it is natural to feel numb, sad or angry at anything. With the power of time, these acute emotions should become subtler as you start to accept the loss and move on. If you are not feeling any better over time, but instead feeling worse off than before, it might be a clue that your grief has grown into a more complex situation, such as Complicated Grief Disorder (CGD) or clinical depression.
