Rhinogirl5 Stars Out Of 5Experiencing GriefAugust 1, 2022RhinogirlI lost my husband 3 months ago. I bought this book to see if it would help me understand what I was going through. I felt so alone and not understanding my feeling etc. So, I ordered this book. I read it from cover to cover. What a help!!! It was amazing. It helped me so much. We are going to use it in a group grief gathering. Everyone who lost a loved one should read this book.

lelaNew York NYAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Experiencing Grief: ExcellentMarch 3, 2022lelaNew York NYAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Dr wright does a great job of explaining the grief process, especially the back and forth emotions that accompany the grieving process(e.g., You find yourself sobbing suddenly when you think that the acute stage has passed.)
There is often societal pressure to focus on the positive while the person left behind experiences a gamut of emotions
He also discusses so called 'negative' emotions that the griever may be ashamed and reluctant to share: A few examples include:
Anger at the deceased for leaving those left behind to cope alone. This is exacerbated if the deceased death is directly linked to specific behaviors( smoking, speeding,etc)
Relief that the sick person is no longer suffering can also be accompanied by relief that the caregiver is no longer burdened with financial worries, physical strain and anxiety.
Regret that the death cancels any chance to correct a poor relationship with the deceased. This is especially true if the death is sudden without a chance to say goodbye
Mixed emotions after the death of a spouse who has been verbally or physically abusive. The surviving spouse has never shared this with anyone and is reluctant to do so now.
Fear of disapproval or rejection by family if these or other emotions are shared. Everyone needs a trustworthy friend who will listen and support.
This is a small book but very insightful and comforting to anyone whonis grieving.
