Post Holiday Grief

In past articles, I've written how many people experience grief during the holiday season. Reason's for the grief can vary widely, but most of the time it is due to the death of a loved one, be it a recent death or one that occurred many years ago. Suffice it to say, the time after the holiday's can also be difficult. In fact people who were fine and maybe even enjoyed the holiday season can become depressed. Maybe they were able to "hide" their grief from friends and family because they didn't want to ruin what should be a joyous time. However, now that things get back to normal, the grief and depression intensifies.

If this sounds like you, please know that you are not alone. There are many people who suffer from post holiday grief and depression. For the past year or so, we have been in the process of forming the East Shore Grief Network. The sole purpose of the network is to provide information and grief support to those in need. I am happy to say that after months of planning and training we have finally reached our goal of providing grief support in our communities. We currently have four different support groups that have started or will be starting. If you have internet access please visit www.eastshoregrief.com or if you don't have internet access please give us a call at (920) 849-4941 for the times and places of the meetings. The support group leaders have all gone through training and are ready to help you through this difficult time in your life. Most importantly, the people (you) who come to the support groups all have the same thing in common. In fact, many people who meet in support groups often become life long friends. These groups are open to anyone who has experienced the death of a loved one. In an effort to maintain structure, there are rules, however few, like starting on time and ending on time.

This is truly something new to our communities and we are hopeful that we will be able to help many people. If you aren't somebody who needs this support but know of somebody who does, please reach out to them and send them our way. Grief is a difficult road to travel but it doesn't have to be traveled alone.
