Most of the time when a loss happens,we don't know what to do. The main complaint I hear is that people say or do the wrong thing or just disappear. But today is about the opposite reaction - Too. Much. Help. Go away!!

A friend of a friend just tragically lost her longs...

Shocking. Cruel. Unethical. Tragic.

These are only a few words that come to mind when I see some of the attacks being levied towards those in the public eye who have lost a loved one. It is upsetting on so many levels – and I have had to wait a few days to gather my tho...

One of my oldest and dearest friends recently lost her mom. It was a hard-fought battle and a message I had dreaded for a long time. When I spoke to my friend later that day, she seemed ok, given what had happened - but a mutual friend had said to her: "Welcome to The...

I have been in tears many times since Valentine’s Day, watching yet another school and community be shattered by gunshots. I made the mistake of watching the footage from inside the classrooms…it wasn’t the visuals that tore at me, it was the sounds – the gunshots, the...

Anytime Grief & Loss are in the spotlight, it gets my attention. Yesterday, Dr. Phil did his show partially about Melissa (left), who lost her mother 1½ years ago and has gotten stuck in her pain and anguish. It is affecting her relationship, her work and her parenting...

As someone who has seen political outrage and national anger hundreds of times, I am struck by how bitter and ugly these times are. And it seems to me that our

Grieving often involves a tremendous amount of suffering. But lately, I seem to be running across a great many people who have lost someone or something to which they were deeply deeply attached: a soulmate, a child, a best friend – even an animal. These folks are not...
