After living through a traumatic event, grief is not something that can be calculated. While there are different levels and stages, one cannot dictate how they each affect you. Accepting your feelings is normal. Rather than putting yourself down for emotions of anger, frustration or sadness, utilizing them to push through in your daily tasks will strengthen the relationship you maintain with the deceased.
Do you have depression? Take the online test!
A 2012 study showed that heart attacks can occur when individuals suffer through the grieving process and this heightened state can last up to a month after the death of the loved one. So while chances of death due to grief remain quite low, there is a reality to the term "died of a broken heart".
Taking care of oneself and putting the focus back on you, rather than everyone else will allow you to move through the grieving process with as much ease as can be expected.
