"It is not just loss of love. It is also regret, anger, and frustration,”
said Michelle Meyer, a licensed clinical social worker. “Giving
yourself permission to feel those from start to end is important. We compartmentalize
so we can function, but we need to feel an emotion all the way through
so we get relief at the end.”
Meyer is leading a new Marcus Daly Hospice bereavement support group[ focused
on grief support, beginning Jan. 16. She'll use Dr. Alan Wolfelt’s
book “Understanding Your Grief” as part of the course.
