Don't grieve alone; 14,000 members and growing
All of us are going through collective sorrow secondary to the pandemic. Here at Online Grief Support, we have already experienced loss, and the pandemic has only added to this. We are feeling out of control.
We are trying our best to adapt. I would like to suggest Journal Therapy to help with the healing process. It can be helpful to put words to losses. Writing can help us identify ways to move forward. Journaling helps improve our mental health. Have you tried journal Therapy?
When we journal, we can detect strengths and weaknesses and identify coping skills. How have you healed and recovered in the past? Do you have social support? Currently, we are practicing social distancing but there are avenues to reach out to each other – Skype, Facetime, Zoom and the Online Grief Support "Chat" feature. Have you utilized any of these?
Journaling is therapy you can try today if you are willing. I am including journaling prompts at the end of this post to spark ideas. Write in a journal or use the Journaling feature on this site.

Here are some journal prompts:
I hope I have been somewhat helpful. Please contact me and let me know how you are doing. We also have a chat feature here on the site. If you see me on the chat, feel free to chat with me.
