Grief is what we feel after a significant loss such as bereavement and feeling of grief can take many forms such as sadness, anger, relief, depression and many others. Everyone experiences grief differently, there is no normal or right way to grieve. Grief is completely natural after a bereavement.

It is normal to feel a range of emotions after a bereavement such as, difficulty coping, unusually tired, confused, unable to concentrate, feeling numb and empty, nightmares, difficulty sleeping.
