Therapy can help: Psychotherapy can help with grief. Check with a local hospital for a therapist who works in this area. Grief often comes at us in waves. It is detrimental to our overall health and must be dealt with. For many people keeping busy is helpful. Be sure you take care of your nutritional needs during this time. Sleep enough but do not oversleep. Hopefully your grief will pass soon.

Support: Support from family and frends can help one cope with grief. Support groups are also available through hospice and some hospitals. There are also grief counselors who can provide individual counseling.

Therapy?: Have you yet tried any form of psychotherapy? Typically, the optimal combination of things to treat emotional issues such as depression is medication (which, on your best day, is supposed to take the edge off symptoms) but the real gruntwork takes place in psychotherapist's consulting room.
