Give Grief A Chance Podcast
A podcast about bringing grief awareness out into the open. A project to help people connect, and share their experiences with grief and loss
On this week's episode I'm talking about prolonged grief disorder. When it comes to grieving we all have different paths to follow and many people find ways to cope and move through their loss, over time their symptoms of grief begin to decrease enough to allow them to keep moving forward with their life. However, someone who might be struggling with prolonged grief disorder may feel stuck in their emotional pain so much so that it interferes with their daily life, there's a constant yearning and longing for the person who has died and they have no idea how they will ever get their life back together. Many people and can't figure out what's going on with them and don't realize they have it.
On this week's episode I have a chat with Suzanne Falter who's daughter Teal died at the age of 22. Since Teal's death Suzanne has written a memoir called Free Spirited; how my daughter healed me from the afterlife. This incredible but true story proves that there is an afterlife and that those who have passed on have the power to heal us. Suzanne is an intuitive healer who helps people suffering from upset, confusion, and stress and on this episode lovingly shares her journey through grief. Enjoy!

Enjoy!
On this week's episode, I'm talking about looking for some signs that show you might be avoiding your grief. On a daily basis either consciously or unconsciously we use avoidance in some way shape or form, and we will especially use it when we have to deal with thoughts and feelings that are uncomfortable and cause pain. Many use avoidance when it comes to grief because they may not want, or are not prepared to face their heartache so they will try to avoid. However, avoidance doesn't work for us.
