“People would tell me 'grieving is a process' with specific stages, suggesting there is a beginning and an end. I have not found this to be the case, rather I think grief is a state that we learn to live with... When you are given a diagnosis like muscular dystrophy you not only grief the loss initially, you move into a 'State' of grief. There are different stages in this State but there is never an end.”
"For in grief nothing 'stays put.' One keeps on emerging from a phase, but it always recurs. Round and round. Everything repeats. Am I going in circles, or dare I hope I am on a spiral?
But if a spiral, am I going up or down it?"― C.S. Lewis , A Grief Observed
Our cry out to you God.
