Grief

Losses challenge a person's beliefs and assumptions about themselves and their world. They disrupt hopes and dreams for the future, and are likely to result in intense distress. Recently bereaved show increased anxiety and somatic complaints, and general decrease in functioning. Common grief responses include: decreased concentration, a sense of numbness, disrupted sleep, changed eating habits, a roller-coaster of emotions and emotional isolation.
