Bereavement Support Group
When we lose a loved one by death, we are wounded. Just as a wound does, we need to heal from within, to express our thoughts and feelings, even when they seem crazy. We need to recognize that "crazy" is normal.
Knowing this will not lessen your grief, but it may help your healing to begin. A support group is a safe haven where we can talk, cry, share our anger, guilt, and fears with those who understand and care.
Grief, like a wound takes time to heal. A support group is to the grieving like a healing salve is to a wound; it soothes and comforts us while we heal.
We are here to offer information, to listen, to share feelings, and to support one another. Some topice that are touched upon are:
Understanding the stages of grief and coping with the feelings that accompany each.
