I am so glad you have taken the Inventory of Grief.
With a score of 97 - 135 you show possible indicators of complicated grieving.
Here are a few things about complicated grief that could you as you move through YOUR Pathway Through Grief.
This could indicate that your life has been difficult to manage since the loss and you are having a hard time with daily tasks around the house or at work.
Complicated grieving is very common and can be worked through.
1. Complicated Grief is not a sign of weakness or that you have "lost your mind".
2. There are times when you may feel crushed by deep anguish and despair. This is hard. The darkness of depression and the loss of vision is real. It can be debilitating.
3. When the Emotional Abyss Breaks through its barriers and you are no longer able to contain it - rage, anger, and even mania can result. This often leaves others hurting and distant.
The release is not always angry. Sometimes mania can lead to feeling overly happy, delusional thinking, excessive shopping, or even relationships.
These are all part of the bargaining
that is trying to help us cope.
4. It is okay to just sit for a bit and let the "snow" in your life settle from the turmoil of the loss. Do not be pressured to rush "getting over it". This said, be careful to not let the feeling of safety from isolation get you stuck. If we do not press frward and express what we really feel inside - hurt, betrayed, shame, abandoned, etc. we can get bogged down in a never ending emotional chaos.
