Personal Grief

While much has been said about it, comfort is still difficult to come by. Grief may be universal, but it is also quite an individual matter. This is one reason why psychologists sometimes have difficulties dealing with it effectively. The manner in which people deal with grief is influenced by culture, religion, and personality. Some people mourn publicly while others withdraw. Some search for meaning by asking what the life of the deceased meant or why death came at this particular time. Others never bother to ask these questions. Some people want to talk about how they feel; others do not. Grieving over a loss is normal and necessary, and some may get through it best on their own.

Death Takes its Toll

It is often said that one of the primary reasons to preplan a funeral is that doing so spares the surviving spouse and family members the burden of having to make funeral and burial arrangements under great stress. Just how much stress does a surviving spouse endure after the death of a beloved husband or wife? According to a recent medical study published in a leading cardiology journal, the risk of heart attack spikes 21 times higher than normal in the first 24 hours after the death of a close relative or friend. The average age of the study's participants was nearly 62, and the risk of heart attack jumped even among those with no previous history of heart disease.
