Learning how to cope with the loss of a child is an extremely difficult and painful experience. The author, Lora C. Mercado, lost her son in 2003 due to a congenital heart defect. Throughout this book, she will share with you some of the things that have helped her through this journey of grief and healing, as well as other valuable tips that she has learned through research and other parents who have lost a child.
Losing a loved one is not something you can effectively prepare for, even in the event of declining health. There isn't a way to predict how you will feel or how it will affect you when the time comes. My husband and I lost our infant son Alex in 2003 due to a congenital heart defect. Each of us handled our grief in completely different ways. Though it is human nature to go through specific stages of grief, these stages rarely coincide when two people are coping with loss at the same time.
Written by Lora C Mercado, who endured the death of her son in 2003, this book will give you tips and strategies to help you heal from the shock and desperation from losing someone you love. Also included are true stories from others who have walked the journey of grief, and how they have overcome the raw emotions that accompany the death of a loved one.
Depression, anxiety, and other issues are some of the most common problems that people must overcome when they are going through the stages of grief. These symptoms can last for weeks, months, and even years. By practicing meditation, you can ease the emotions that are weighing you down so you can once again start living with a sense of peace.
