Losing a loved one is one of the most distressing and, unfortunately, common experiences older people experience. Most people experiencing “normal grief “ that would include a period of sorrow, numbness, and even guilt and anger. This would usually gradually ease as you come to accept the loss and move forward.
For some people, feelings of loss are prolonged and debilitating so much so that you have trouble recovering from the loss and resuming your own life. This is abnormal grief, sometimes called persistent complex bereavement disorder.
Contact your doctor or a mental health professional if you have intense grief with the symptoms above and don’t improve, one year after the death of your loved one. We offer depression therapy online and TMS as alternatives to or in conjunction with antidepressants.
