This string of articles made me think that this woman was dealing with the death of her husband all wrong. Not that I'm an expert or anything but I thought that the way that she was grieving was detrimental by making it harder on herself and doing everything that she could to remind herself. She said that she kept a lot of her husband's t-shirts in bags so that she could reserve his smell. I feel like that would only remind her of her terrible loss, especially considering that it was so close to the death of her husband. I personally have no idea how I would react. Last Sunday my dog Tucker, got into some antifreeze on the street and didn't make it when we took him to the vet. I understand that this really doesn't compare to losing your partner but I handled it differently, which is probably not very healthy either. I'm someone who doesn't like to talk about why I'm grieving because it makes it more painful to remind myself of the loss. When the assistant informed me that my puppy didn't make it she kept asking if there was anything that she could do or if I wanted to talk. I just shook my head and told her that I would wait for my mom to get back to the animal hospital. My mom got back and immediately came up and hugged me and asked me if I wanted to talk, just like the assistant. I told her that I just wanted to get out of there as soon as possible. When I got back to my dorm the next day I didn't tell anyone even though I was still upset about it. It made it easier for me to handle it to not remind myself about my loss. Like I said, I understand that my story and this woman's story are on two totally different levels but I couldn't help myself but to compare. She did little things to remind herself of her loss whereas I just kind of brushed everything under the rug. I have no idea which way is healthier and I am interested in finding out more and am excited for our discussion about grief tomorrow.
