Grief

My husband passed away a few months ago and I am having a very hard time dealing with the grief any suggestions on a bereavement group or anything that was helpfulness

First of all, I am sorry for your loss and there are no words that can be said to remove your pain.  

 

Dealing with the grief is necessary.  I used GriefShare which is a multi-week religious based process and was very helpful.   I might have realized more benefit if I was a member of the church.  I might have liked a traditional group setting away from a church because the visual church setting became a negative visual reminder.   Taking time to journal your grief will always be helpful.

I am sorry for your loss.  GriefShare is a wonderful program and is Christ based program. That means we use scripture, and do talk about God.  We are in no way there to suggest a specific church or talk religion.  Many groups are now meeting online, through a program called Zoom Meet. This way you can watch the video and participate in a discussion after the video, in your own home..  It is usually a 2 hour program, and runs for 13 weeks.  You can find a group, or more information at:    www.griefshare.org/findagroup.

I would be willing to help you find  a group in your area, if you would still like to get more from the program. Text or E mail me.  Marcia 775-253-0201  or   wild3savage2@yahoo.com

To our Online Community Members,

We wanted to let you know that our Community Guidelines and Terms of Service have been updated. The changes are intended to foster more civil discussions in AARP’s online communities. The issues discussed in these communities – including healthcare, retirement and politics – are serious and stir up strong emotions. We should have spirited debates about all of them, but those debates should always be respectful, on topic and fact based. We will be applying these standards in our online communities as we work together, with all of you, to address the challenges that face older Americans. Thank you.
