When I was nine years old (admittedly, that was a long time ago), my pet hamster died. I cried and cried.. Vets tell us that pet owners cry more for their pets than they do for their family. That’s weird!
Grief sometimes manifests itself as physical symptoms, and probably all practitioners see patients with symptoms that might be made more troublesome because they are mourning a loss.
I was intrigued by a podcast called ‘Griefcast‘, run by comedian Cariad Lloyd, who interviews different comedians about loss and grief. A lot of the interviews are really funny, and this gives us a clue about grief: it’s different for each of us. Have a look at it and see what you think. You can also find it on via your iTunes account and on Acast.
