Recovering from a tragedy or painful loss and how to make an injury claim
Your doctor may refer you to counselling to help you to get through this time, but there are also things that you can do to help yourself to feel better.
- Allow yourself to grieve. Obviously everyone has a life that they need to be getting on with, but after you have suffered a painful loss you aren’t expected to go back to normal right away. You need to give yourself time to grieve and feel upset about the loss of a loved one, and don’t try to be ‘normal’ too soon.
- Speak to others. If you have had a painful loss then other people have as well, anyone who was also close with the person in question. Spending time with the other people who are dealing with this loss can be a great help, as you can share feelings and memories, and come to terms with the loss together.
- Be nice to yourself. Whilst you are struggling to deal with a tragedy, you need to just be nice to yourself as much as possible. Don’t push yourself to cope too quickly, avoid challenging yourself too much and listen to your body, which will tell you what it needs during this time.
- See a counsellor. Counsellors are there to provide you with help and support that you won’t be able to provide yourself. This can help you to get to the root feelings, and deal with these.
