Myths about Grief

Grief is an illness to be medicated.

No - grief is not an illness. It is a normal process that we all go through when we suffer a loss. Medication, alcohol or drugs do not alleviate our pain on a long term basis and can often create other problems. Prescribed medication can sometimes be helpful in association with counselling.

There is a “right  way” to grieve.

Not true – grief is unique and personal, and we all grieve differently. Grief does not go through prescribed stages. Some people describe their experience like being in a storm or a fog, where others feel emptiness or bodily pain.
