Grief is a natural and healthy reaction to loss but it can be extremely debilitating and result in a downward emotional spiral, impacting on such aspects of life as relationships and work.
Relentless grief can cause a host of physical problems due to the sufferer not looking after themselves properly, for example not eating, becoming over-reliant on alcohol, experiencing disrupted sleep.
It can also lead to serious emotional and psychological problems such as depression, anxiety, health anxiety and panic attacks.
This self-help book will prove invaluable to the recently bereaved, guiding them through the painful process of bereavement.
