In 2014 I experienced multiple losses. I fell into a deep depression, lost all focus and the want, or will to participate in life.
I knew I was in trouble and searched for help. I found Natalie Segall and Good Grief Central. Natalie patiently helped me to understand the emotions I was feeling, reassured me that I was not crazy, and provided me with a safe place to express the intense emotions that were overwhelming me. Friends were eager to comfort me but were unsure how to do so. Natalie showed me how to ask for the help I needed.
In the process, I learned how to take better care of myself.In addition to working through not only my current losses, Natalie helped me work through an immense amount of compounded grief from my past that had not been healed.
I started volunteering at Good Grief Workshop for Children and Teens, and here I met more wonderful people, all with the common ground of loss and grief. I consider myself very fortunate to have found Good Grief Central. Because of my experience, I want to pay it forward the best way I can by giving my time and energy to something very dear to my heart and spreading the word of this wonderful organization.
Whether your loss has been sudden or expected, Natalie Segall and Good Grief Central will guide and assist you as you learn to cope with the depth of emotions and experiences that are part of healthy grieving.
