My Friend, I Care: The Grief Experience
Intended for the newly grieving, My Friend, I Care addresses the normal process of grieving and the stages of grief while offering suggestions for moving forward into living.
The grieving process is as foreign to us as death. The experience is forced upon us by life situations that are beyond our control. We become angry, depressed, fearful and anxious. We do not know that all of these feelings together represent grief; a normal, natural response to the loss of someone or something. No one has taught us what it feels like to grieve. We don’t know how to heal the hurt created by grief or how to live with it. My Friend, I Care offers simple explanations for the thoughts and feelings generated by grief.
Individuals as well as agencies often use My Friend, I Care as a sympathy card personalizing the booklet with signatures and condolences. It offers an expression of caring while giving support and guidance.
Like all of Barbara's booklets, My Friend, I Care is written in large print and the information is conveyed in a simple, direct yet gentle manner.
This booklet is included in the End of Life Guideline Series.
