From Robin Riddle
PD Caregiver Support
 

A recent New York Times article is about complicated grief -- "an extreme, unrelenting reaction to loss that persists for more than six months... Symptoms...commonly include intense yearning, longing or emotional pain; frequent preoccupying, intrusive thoughts and memories of the person lost; a feeling of disbelief or inability to accept the loss; and difficulty imagining a meaningful life without that person." 

Apparently there are things we can do now to help our loved one's avoid complicated grief.
