This post is written from a personal perspective with the hopes that it may help someone who is experiencing the loss of a loved one. The loss of my brother, aged 48 , in October was an extremely stressful time. Its was also not the first time I have lost a sibling, my sister had died in 2001. However, what was different is how I have reacted and been able to support myself physically and emotionally as well as accepting the support of others. This in turn has helped me reflect and work through the turmoil of emotions. I guess this comes with maturity. Grief never goes away , it simply changes, but as we are going through the process and transition we need to support our bodies and minds in order to ensure healthy outcomes.
