Anticipatory grief has benefits of which we're not aware.
In this episode, I talked with Harriet Hodgson about anticipatory grief. Harriet has been a freelance health and wellness writer for 38 years, but more importantly, she has experienced more than her share of suffering.
Harriet and I talk about the many forms of early grief, how the process can be beneficial, and how you can add it to your coping tools.
Harriet's book also tackles; grief as a reaction to change, early grief's symptoms and stages, response to early grief, and when early grief gets complicated.
Dying and grief are not topics most people want to discuss (or listen to), but I know you'll find this conversation enlightening and beneficial. You can also check out Harriet's book, Smiling Through Your Tears. Understanding the emotions you're experiencing is another healthy step caregivers should take.
