“At times during the grief process, survivors will be stricken with sudden waves of physical pain, often in the gut or chest, so powerful as to cause them to nearly double over. These will occur without warning and are supremely different from the pain of physical illnesses. These are a reaction to feeling overwhelmed by grief. With time and the proper support, these waves will occur less frequently, be less intense, and last for shorter periods of time.” ~excerpt from Dying to Be Free
When we experience loss, our body, mind and spirit are affected. Sometimes, those effects catch us off-guard.
It helps me to read about the experiences of others. And, I thought, you might need the information too.
If you are walking through grief, educate yourself. Then arm yourself with the Word of God. The book of Psalms is an excellent source of comfort and strength when we are hurting.
Don’t neglect to care for your heart, mind and soul during difficult days. There is help available.
