A Guide on Grief
Grief is the natural emotional sensation one has in response to a loss.
Although sorrow is most usually associated with the death of a loved one, it may also be triggered by any big loss (for example, the end of a relationship, the loss of a career, or the loss of a home).
Prolonged grieving is a reaction to loss that lasts longer than a year and affects the sufferer’s personal connections, disrupts his or her beliefs, and leaves the bereaved with an unquenchable desire for their departed loved one.
Types of grief
There are many types and subtypes of grief. Some of the common ones are:
- Anticipatory Grief : One of the less well-known kinds of grief is bereavement. It’s possible to experience sorrow before a loss occurs; for example, if you know someone who has a terminal illness, the feeling may begin to surface before they die.
- Normal Grief : Despite their sadness, some individuals go about their daily lives as usual. It may appear that the individual has not been impacted from the outside, yet pain, numbness, and other sensations are still there under the ‘normal’ veneer. Because strong sensations of sorrow sometimes occur in bursts, they may not be visible to everyone unless they are with the griever 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Over time, the intensity of our sensations diminishes until we reach what we call “the new normal.”
- Complicated Grief : Complicated sorrow is the next form of grief on the list, and it affects a tiny number of people. Pain is so severe here that it stops people from going about their everyday lives.
- Delayed Grief : Grief-related sentiments don’t often arise right away after losing something important. For some people, this implies that their sentiments over losing someone or something get stronger over time, or that they find it more difficult to deal with months later than in the immediate aftermath of the incident.
- Inhibited Grief : It is a type of sadness that isn’t allowed to be expressed when a griever avoids addressing the realities of losing something or someone by focusing on other things, this is known as inhibited grieving. People may devote all of their time and energy to something that will keep them occupied, and they may conceal their emotions in the hopes of avoiding suffering.
- Disenfranchised Grief: People who are suffering so-called disenfranchised sorrow, unlike the other forms of grieving listed above, generally receive little assistance or recognition. After losing a pet, a non-family member, or a piece of oneself, we may experience disenfranchised sorrow (such as losing function of a body part after an accident). Society does not frequently recognise the loss as being “worthy of grieving,” which adds to the strain on grievers, who may feel as though no one else understands them and that they must hide their emotions.
- Absent Grief : Absent sorrow is a more extreme variant of inhibited grieving that centres around avoidance or denial. It is similar to inhibited grief in that the individual silences their feelings and goes on as if nothing has happened. There have been tales of severe examples, such as an 80-year-old woman who remained free of grief for 30 years after losing a son because she refused to accept her son had died.
- Exaggerated Grief : Exaggerated grief is the last of the main forms of grieving, and it is comparable to complex grief in that the sadness and incapacity to function do not improve over time. This might be the outcome of a griever feeling disoriented and unable to cope as a result of several losses occurring at the same time or over a short period of time. Exaggerated grief may quickly evolve into depression if not addressed.
Symptoms of grief
The symptoms of grief can be divided into two categories, namely, cognitive and physical. Here are they:
Emotional symptoms of grief
- Increased irritability
- Preoccupation with loss
- Inability to show or experience joy
Physical symptoms of grief:
- Digestive problems
- Chest pain
- Sore muscles
Causes of grief
While the precise origin of protracted or difficult grieving is unknown, normal sadness is most frequently associated with the death of a loved one. Grief can also be triggered by the following:
- A job is lost, a cherished pet is lost, a friendship is lost, and a personal dream is lost.
- The break-up of a love relationship
Grief can be triggered by the loss of something dear to you. You may be at risk for a grieving disorder if you are unable to manage with your sadness for an extended length of time. If you or someone you care about is having trouble coping with sorrow, call for assistance. Our caring staff members are accessible at all hours of the day and night to help you discover the best therapy for grieving disorders.
