Losing someone can be an emotionally traumatic experience. Traveling through the stages of grief can be painful and emotionally devastating. The first stage begins with denial where numbness and isolation takes over your reality and a sense of lacking in care occurs. Secondly, anger sets in towards the individual that passed on or those involved in any health treatment. The next stages are bargaining, depression, and acceptance. These can be some of the most complicated leading to unresolved issues that torment the individual with remorse and guilt to depression and sadness until finally acceptance occurs and they can move on.
