What is Complicated Grief Disorder?
Grief is the price we pay for love. When someone close to us dies, the deep sadness that follows is a universal experience. No one is expected to suffer a loss and move on immediately.
However, with time and self-care, most people can accept their loss and achieve a sense of peace. If these feelings do not lighten in the following weeks or months, those left behind can feel utterly alone.
People with complicated grief live in a world where only their grief exists. Their suffering can become pervasive. They find it impossible to stop fixating on the deceased.
