I read this book (among many other resources) when I had to survive the suicide of my boyfriend in 2003. I found it really helpful.

One idea from the book that stays in my mind and that I tell other people is this: in our society we learn how to acquire things, but we never learn how to let go of things... how to experience loss. We end up picking up lines from movies and TV shows, and I can tell you first-hand, that is really awful when you're at the receiving end of it.

I believe this book will help you - and others who want to help you - live through loss. You are not alone.

Why is it so traumatic, I have just been through the toughest year of my life trying to deal with the death of my Love and my father and there have been many times when I thought that being dead myself would surely be better than trying to deal with the death of two people that were a significant part of my life and all the misery that went with it. What I want to know is, what is the point of grief, why is it so awful to the point that you feel your own life is not worth living, why is the experience so shocking and what do we really gain from it. I know I am not the same person and that everything is different now, I don't view that as a bad thing really but what it took me to get to the other side of this is something I find hard to deal with and I wonder what your thoughts are on grief? Can we ignore it and just get on with our lives because some people seem able to do that, whereas I couldn't carry on, I couldn't even function at all for months and months. Maybe that's a tough journey
