Don't grieve alone; 12,500 members and growing
I've just added a new feature to the site. Favorite books. If you have read any books that you found helpful in your walk with grief, I would be glad to add them to our favorite books list. Just let me know.
Here's a book that I recently (yesterday in fact):
Healing Grief, Finding Peace by Dr. Louis E. Lagrand
Gives you lots of ways to help cope w/grief. Chief among them is changing your negative, hurtful thoughts to positive coping mechanisms.
Hi, for anyone struggling with disenfranchised grief "disenfranchised grief, recognising hidden sorrow" really helped me. It is probably more written for other proffesionals but is as far as I am aware the only book on disenfranchised grief.
It really helped me to know there were others who understood. It covers grief such as that from having an abortion or miscarraige or the loss of an ex partner or gay partner and the loss of a loved one to suicide or aids amoungst other situations.
Thanks, I'll add these soon. Lou LaGrand is actually a member of this site, although he hasn't been on here in a while. Good choices. Thanks again.
