The Stages of Grief
Elizabeth Kubler-Ross' book, "On Death and Dying."
*Denial (this isn't happening to me!)
*Anger (why is this happening to me?)
*Bargaining (I promise I'll be a better person if...)
*Depression (I don't care anymore)
*Acceptance (I'm ready for whatever comes)
Dr. Roberta Temes in the book, "Living With An Empty Chair - a guide through grief."
*Numbness (mechanical functioning and social insulation)
*Disorganization (intensely painful feelings of loss)
*Reorganization (re-entry into a more 'normal' social life.)
