Tine know what it means to loose someone close, in her 30s she lost a dear friend to suicide and that is embraced in her heart forever.
Grief is not always about death. Grief is about loss, and that loss comes in many forms. I’ve witnessed grief in all forms as a Medical social worker, from the loss of a marriage to the loss of a career, loss of stability or loss of health. Regardless of the type of loss you’ve experienced, your grief is real. Grief often brings along many feelings that may be difficult or confusing for you.
