Methodist Moments i By Rev. Karen Blank Ewell Life After Loss Any loss is upsetting. It isn't just a death that upsets your ense of balance. It is impor- tant to rememb that divorce, moving, financial loss, children leaving home, and illness are among many other experiences that can have devistating effects on you. It is also impor- tant to remember that these kinds of experiences happen to everyone. They knock you off balance. And while life seems to be going on, the truth is that you must reclaim your balance before your life can go on fully. That recovery takes time and attention and work. If you do not take the time to pay atten- tion to your grief and do the work, life after a major loss will never again be as full as it could be. There are four steps to walk- ing the path back to wholeness. There are the four steps to grief recovery. You can expect to take these steps over a span of time that varies from a few months, for a minor loss, to a three years or more for a major loss in your life. Some of these steps will seems automatic, out of your control. Others will require enormous will power and intentionality on your part. All of these steps are nec- essary. The steps are: shock and numbness, denial and with- drawal, acknowledgment and pain, and adapting and renew- al. As you understand these steps, you will be able to deal with your grief more effectively and actually grow through the grief experience. Understand- ing these steps will also help family and friends understand what is happening to you and how they can best support you. This week I will cover shock and numbness. In the weeks to come we will cover the otker steps of grieving. In the first seven to 10 days aRer a major loss, you will probably feel stunned, shocked, and overwhelmed. You may feel frozen in time, or hysterical. In any case you will have a difficult time later remembering much of what took place. If you are going through this now, may I suggest that you intentionally keep a journal, have others record words of comforts for you, some people take pictures, others Save mementos of the event. Find some way that fits you, to help you hold on to these events. They will be more of a comfort and reality check later than they are now. Secondly, do not make any sudden decisions or moves. Now is not the time to give away clothing, move, quit a job, or get remarried. Now is the time to just let your body absorb the impact of the loss. Your reaction of shock and numbness is a natural reac- tion, it is a result of a reflex action that shuts down your entire emotional system. Whatever your initial outward reaction, you will have a cer- tain numbness inside. I like to think of this as God's way of providing a against the full impact I losses. The stage of numbness is a brief place before we begin journey through the grief to a renewed For the first few the death of a loved the funeral is over ative have gone shock will begin to This is a good time someone with you. time to make major without help.
