Coping with grief

Community workshop to be held on March 1

By Bev Mullen - For the Record-Herald

Grief can come into our lives anytime during a year. At this time of the year, when winter is slowly creeping out and spring is tentatively tip-toeing in, we may feel the affects of an old grief or be dealing with the turbulence of a recent loss.

Spring is viewed as a time of rebirth. Everyone around is happy that all of our beloved activities may soon return. Grief, however, may keep us from seeing that “sunny side” of life. We may feel guilty if we do feel joy at the coming of spring. We may think we never want to enjoy any of the old joys again. We do not know how to cope with the knowledge that the world is changing into a wonderland of color and our world has lost a loved one, or a home, or an income.

Fayette County AmVets, in conjunction with Hospice of Fayette County, is presenting a Community Grief Workshop on Tuesday, March 1 in the conference room of the Center for Economic Opportunity, 101 E. East St. in Washington C.H.

The two-hour workshop, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., is open to the public. There is no fee to attend. This interactive workshop is an opportunity to meet with others who are dealing with grief and to gain coping skills that will help you with the pit-falls that can occur during the grief journey.

If you have questions regarding this grief workshop, you may call AmVets at 740-505-8555 or Hospice at 740-335-0149.
