Death of Husband

Yes, this pandemic makes such big losses all the more challenging. My stepmother had recommended to me a national group called GriefShare. I just googled that name & they are still offering many groups at least in my zip code area currently.

I actually attended this program twice. The first time I attended it the group was run by a licensed psychologist & she was heavily into privacy so much so I had no idea why some people were there, they never shared a word.

The second group I attended was run by a Presbyterian minister’s daughter & she had everyone introduced themselves & at least share why they were there. So much can depend on how facilitators suit you.

At the time I took the program they ask only for a donation of less than $20 for the workbook which was actually optional to purchase. DVDs were shown on the book’s weekly topics then discussed (your input was completely optional) afterwards.

I felt I greatly benefited from the second go at it, mainly because the facilitator shared her experience with us & I found it so helpful, validating what I was going through. I hope you have/find help that is of comfort to you. God bless.

I lost my husband seven months ago. I found the website and signed up for a navigating the holidays session. Thank you for the recommendation.
