Are you undergoing the loss of a loved one - a spouse, a partner, a parent, a child, or someone else - who had been a vital part of your life and about whom you cared deeply? Has your loss left you sad, confused, angry, and full of questions that seem to have no answers? If any of these examples describes your current situation, chances are you are experiencing grief - a natural, normal response to encountering any major loss.
We all have those moments when we feel like the world is just about to fall on us. At that time, butterflies cannot even seem to describe the feeling of helplessness, tension, and anxiety that goes on in our mind. We feel that we would be delighted if we could just disappear and emerge when certain situations (like an interview, an exam, a medical test, a speech, an important business meeting etc.) in our life have passed. But the good thing is that we don't run away; we stick there until the end.
