      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

The Grief Process

3 posts in this topic

We've talked in several forums about the grief process, what's considered "normal", why it takes so long or does it seem like it wasn't long enough or even if what you are experiencing is actually grief...this article popped up on my FB feed today...

Sometimes ... you don’t even recognize that you’ve lost something and that you need to grieve. 

It seems to me we see this kind of grief here often when, say, a GP is upset that their AC and family have moved/are moving far away or family members have become estranged. It's one of the most difficult kinds of sorrow to deal w/, IMO, b/c, as the article suggests, in those scenarios, people don't always "recognize" that they're grieving.

I can't like this article enough ..beautifully written- There's so very much to consider regarding loss but the way in which this article presents it, to me, the way I see it, something that wasn't wanted happened and the result is deep sadness- And that quite often it isnt even recognized that that's what happened- Beautiful article .. thanks for sharing it ..
