Quoted From:

"Grief is an unpleasant but inevitable ordeal that nearly everyone experiences at some point. Grief can arise from the death of a loved one (known as bereavement), friend, or pet, a relationship ending, the loss of a job or home, and many other unique situations.
Grief has five common stages: Denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance. These stages don"t always occur in a linear fashion, as some people may skip ahead or backward as they mourn.
The stages of grief may be resolved in a matter of months, but in some cases, the healing process can take years. Both are entirely normal, and moving forward after experiencing a profound loss is a deeply personal journey.
Grief can also create physical symptoms, too: Anxiety, fatigue, phantom pains, and autoimmune issues are common among those in mourning.
The best source of mental health treatment for bereavement and other forms of grief is grief counseling, a form of therapy that helps mourners process and accept what they"re experiencing."
