Dealing With Grief

Consider these thought-provoking questions about grief:

    • Is grief a mental illness?
    • Do drugs help or hinder the healing of grief?
    • What brings comfort to the grief caused by loss and pain?

Anna Bowness-Park, of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, answers these questions in a tender, heart-warming article in which she shares how she found freedom from intense (or “raw”, as she puts it) grief after the passing of a beloved uncle. This article was first published in The Times Colonist on October 17, 2012, but its message seems especially timely in light of recent events.

I heartily recommend her article, still available on her Blog entitled, Health Connection: Should we have a medical prescription for grief?
