September is Suicide Awareness Month, as you no doubt know if you have been anywhere near Facebook and stumbled across one of the usual spreading awareness campaigns. I always have to wonder how successful those things are, but that is neither here nor there; in truth they’re probably more successful than this is so I am fairly sure I don’t get to judge. That being said, I have been thinking about it in what few moments of quiet I have managed to steal this month, awareness that is, not suicide. The newborn is not quite that testing. (Yet, anyway.) I figured here would be a good place to talk about it, right?
Anxiety and Grief is an awful combination. Anxietyalone is awful I don’t think anyone is going to deny that and no matter who you are everyone deals with grief at some point in their lives. And regardless of how you process and handle it it is difficult. Personal loss no matter how you shake it up is always going to be painful and difficult, and because it a mental and emotional issue it is always going to vary from person to person in terms of effects and processes.

Anxiety is described as a feeling of unease, fear and worry, and incorporates both physical and mental emotions and sensations. Everyone has it as it is part of our inbuilt fight or flight survival response, but for some their anxiety can be so great that it starts to affect their lives and well-being.
