In Episode 73, we discuss the various intellectual challenges we go through after the death of a loved one and ways to help ourselves cope through these challenges.
When we have a significant loss, we find ourselves in what one would consider a ‘fog’ or ‘bubble’ at the beginning of our grief.
It is during that time when we feel enveloped in a sort of safety net where we are protected.
We do many things on autopilot and at times are unsure how we did all we did.
Sometimes we are going through the motions, like driving our car to work and can’t remember how we got there. It all seems so unreal.
And when the bubble or fog is slowly lifting we might feel even worse because we can’t convince ourselves any longer that this was all a nightmare.
It is then we realize this is very real.
