Complicated-grief disorder

https://www.google.com/am...order/amp/

Just putting it here because life doesn't run on a schedule or follow a chart. Gotta take care of ourselves all the time.


Complicated grief disorder, which is also known as complicated bereavement disorder, keeps sufferers trapped in their pain and sense of loss after the death of someone they love. Grief is a normal human emotion, but it should be transitory, and when it becomes chronic and debilitating people experiencing it may need mental health treatment. With professional assistance, even the worst feelings of grief can be resolved and its most disabling symptoms overcome.

A support group, or seeking help from a doctor, or family for support.

Grief has no time line. Drugs or alcohol does not heal the grief/pain.

Just heard the term today by happenstance. All of us are still dealing with normal life's ups and down including death of family friends and collegues while juggling dealing with the twist and turns of covid. I know I can mask my own feelings from myself at times. I'm sure many others do too, fake it til you make it, and it can lead to not a good place if one does not do a self check and be honest with themselves regularly.

So true, I used to numb it away with shopping and overspending though I don’t anymore

There's a reason why the pop phrase "fake it 'til you make it" is no longer being used...

That's good you are doing better now. These past several months have been very hard on so many people worldwide. I received help for my depression years ago and so glad I did as I'm not sure I would be where I am today without professional help. Losing a loved one can be one of the toughest situations to get through.

That’s good you received help, I also see a counsellor time to time. Talking to her really helped with the grief and other past losses

Yeah I found that to be a family trait I'm determined on breaking. Even though I became aware of it a few years ago. This year I got to see it's full extent dealing with a relatives things. There was a horrible sadness in seeing it.

Yes, it was also common in my family so it makes sense why I was that way for a long time in my life

Well they say recognition is half the battle. I know that people have been dealing with a lot of grief losing loved ones and with everything else all these feelings can overwelm, trying to logic self out of it doesn't necessarily work. Hopefully people are confronting acknowledging and seeking help as needed.

So true, I learned my lesson and acknowledge my role in it, but also factor in that it’s not completely my fault and it was likely to happen in this setting.

I have lost loved ones but used to feel so triggered with going through the grief all over again when I was grieving celebs that passed and the media was overreporting. It really did a number on me that time
