Grief that is unresolved
Some people may not have the opportunity to grieve properly. The heavy demands of looking after a family or business may mean that there just isn't the time.
Others may suffer from strange physical symptoms or repeated spells of depression over the following years.
Some may start to grieve, but get stuck. The early sense of shock and disbelief just goes on and on. Years may pass and still the sufferer finds it hard to believe that the person they loved is dead.
Others may carry on being unable to think of anything else, often making the room of the dead person into a kind of shrine to their memory.
For some, it will be enough to meet people and talk with others who have been through the same experience.
Others may need to see a bereavement counsellor or psychotherapist, either in a special group or on their own for a while (30).
