A person may experience each of the symptoms listed below or only a few. These symptoms do not necessarily occur in any particular order and will vary according to the individual and the nature of the death. Certain phases of grief could be worked through in a matter of hours, days or years. It is said that the grief process will take anywhere from 2 - 5 years, but a time limit can't or shouldn't be put on it. Grief is deeply personal and everyone experiences an occurance in different ways. What may work for one, may not be appropriate for another. The only thing you CAN do is work through it one day at a time and at your own pace.
