How to manage if you feel stuck or desperate
Many people have times after a major loss when they feel they just can't go on. The pain of grief is too hard, or just doesn't seem to be getting any better.
At times like this it's very important that you look for help from others. Don't struggle on alone feeling desperate. Professional support can make a big difference. Talk to your GP, or to a counsellor who specialises in working with grieving people.
Some people find they can 'ride it out', and realise there's a pattern of good days and bad days, with the good ones gradually increasing.
