You may be overwhelmed with physical and emotional stress when your loss finally hits home.
It is normal to feel guilt, anxiety, blame, loneliness, depression, sadness, hurt, anger and many other emotions at this difficult time.
These are uncomfortable but common feelings. The emotional turmoil may last for months, and in some cases for years. Times of sadness are never forgotten, but the hurt does eventually heal.
