I like an analogy here: If we think of grief as a fluid, then immediately after a loss, it fills us completely. But with time and guidance, we grow. Grief doesn’t shrink, but it does take up a little space within us. Suffering is omnipresent, but we don’t talk about it.

This may come as a surprise to many readers. I think there is a widespread belief that parents would prefer to avoid the sight of their children’s death, that it can be very painful, and that we would be better off being shielded from sight. I’m here to assure you otherwise.

Hospitals’ complex electronic health record systems and authentication processes cause significant delays and challenges for physicians, resulting in reduced patient care times. Before the millennium when I used to make hospital rounds, I would spend 10-20 minutes with a patient and document the visit in a few minute charts. Now I understand why hospital-based therapists complain that they have no more than five minutes to spend at the bedside, while trying to spend the 15 to 20 minutes in front of a computer screen that they spent at the bedside. What did you do during the five minutes? There has to be a better way! doctors spending more time on computer than patients Kevin MD

It’s February and I’m a student at MSU. I don’t know what to say except that it’s like learning a language, this broken heartedness.

“I’ve never been a religious person. But it seems when you have such a tragedy in your life like losing your husband of 40 years that you tend to turn that way because you’re looking for an answer. All the books that I feel like reading to talk about the plan God has for you. Why do I get so upset I was perfectly happy with my old plan – to be with the love of my life until until we’re 90 (not just 60) so why throw away my wonderful plan and make me so sad because they have a plan for me?” looking for answers in grief « Grief Healing
