Chapter 1: How you are grieving is important

Common questions, thoughts and feelings

Having many painful questions, thoughts, and feelings is common:

What is happening to me? Who am I?

No one seems to understand what I am living through.

I know he’s dead, but I don’t believe it.

If I really loved her, how can I ever allow myself to be happy again?
I have lost many people before, but nothing has prepared me for this.
I am haunted by the memories of her suffering in the hospital.

I think I am coping well but many people think I am coping badly.

When will things start to get better?
