Page 32 2 Coping with Acute Grief: What to Expect Grief is your response to a great loss in your life. When persons close to you die, you not only lose themyou also lose all the things they offered you in return. You lose the objects of your affection. Your love returns to you like a "dead letter" with no forwarding address. Grief is the feeling that comes in response to the experience of amputation, whether it be physical or emotional. It's your reaction to having part of your life cut off from you.
If you don't let them out now, they'll come out some other time, some other way. That you can count on. You won't suffer nearly as much from "getting too upset" as you will from "being brave" and keeping your honest emotions all locked up inside. During this experience of emotional release, you'll have to deal with two crucial questions: whether to admit that the death was a suicide, and whom to tell about it. How you answer these questions can determine the course of your later mourning. By this time, the word will be out, and your decisions can help or hinder your "grief work" in the days ahead.
Often, an unspoken death wish had been felt toward the deceased, and the actual event fulfills this unconscious desire. When relief, rather than grief, follows suicide, people often bypass the emotional flood that follows shock. Catharsis A Greek word meaning "purging" or "purification," catharsis follows shock in most grief experiences. In this phase, the numbness begins to wear off and you realize the great loss that has occurred in your life. This emotional flood feels uncontrollable. You feel swept away by overpowering emotions.
