Grief, Bereavement and Depression

This is a term that describes all the feelings, thoughts and behaviour that someone goes through after bereavement.

This is a term that can be used to describe any event that includes loss, so this could mean losing your job or the death of someone you know. In this article it refers to the death of a person.

Debate still continues as to what normal grief consists of and whether it is distinct from depression. It is very common for people to have symptoms that are often used to diagnose depression after bereavement. It is less common for people to experience a depressive illness and require treatment for this.

Grief- Psychological view 
People need strong affectionate bonds with other people for their emotional wellbeing, and they try hard to maintain these ties. Loss through death permanently breaks this bond.

Grief can be seen as a person's struggle to maintain the emotional bond, while simultaneously experiencing the reality of loss. 'Grief work' is the process that a mourner needs to complete before resuming daily life; it involves separating from the deceased, adjusting to a world without them and forming new relationships.

People grieve not only for the deceased, but also for the unfulfilled dreams and plans for the future that they hoped to share with them.

Stages of grief
Grief usually passes through three stages, but these stages are not separate, nor do they necessarily follow in sequence.
  • An initial stage of shock or disbelief when it is difficult to believe that the death has occurred. This stage may last minutes or weeks.
  • A stage of acute anguish that usually lasts from weeks to months when feelings of depression occur; planning the future may be difficult.
  • A phase of resolution after months, or even years.

Normal grief?
This is a term used to describe the typical symptoms somebody experiences after bereavement. It can include:
  • disbelief, shock, numbness and feelings of unreality
  • anger
  • feelings of guilt
  • sadness and tearfulness
  • preoccupation with the deceased
  • disturbed sleep and appetite and, occasionally, weight loss
  • seeing or hearing the voice of the deceased.
The initial disturbance the above symptoms causes is gradually reduced and people begin to accept the loss and readjust.

A grief reaction can last for up to 12 months, but can vary within different cultures. The average is probably around six months. A resurgence of symptoms can also occur briefly on anniversaries of the bereavement and on birthdays, etc of the deceased.

Depression and grief
Grief and depression are different. It is possible to grieve without being depressed, but many of the feelings are similar.

Symptoms that suggest a bereaved person is also depressed include:
  • intense feelings of guilt not related to the bereavement.
  • thoughts of suicide or a preoccupation with dying.
  • feelings of worthlessness.
  • markedly slow speech and movements, lying in bed doing nothing all day.
  • prolonged or severe inability to function (not able to work, socialise or enjoy any leisure activity).
  • prolonged hallucinations of the deceased, or hallucinations unrelated to the bereavement.

Treatment for grief
The support of family and friends is invaluable to anyone - especially at difficult times. Sadness after bereavement is natural: it is normal to want to discuss the deceased and become upset while doing so. Expressing feeling does not make things worse.

Grief counselling helps mourning by allowing someone to work through the stages of grief in a supported relationship.

Psychological Counselling along with Homeopathy medicine treatment helps for Grief and Depression

Treatments for depression
Sometimes when we are going through a 'bad patch' in our life, it is enough to talk through our problems with a friend or relative. However, this may not be enough and we may need to seek professional help. The important thing to remember about depression is that it is treatable. There are many different types of treatment. These include medication and talking therapies (psychotherapy).

  • There are many different forms of psychotherapy.
  • Simply talking to somebody or your doctor about your problems is a form of psychotherapy and can help greatly.
  • It is far better to talk about your problems than 'bottling-up' your emotions.
  • More formal psychotherapy includes counselling, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and dynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis.
