Five Stages of Grief and Me

It seems like this is a topic I should have reflected on long ago, but none-the-less, I want to share with you my experiences through the five stages of grief. There are some schools of thought that say there are seven stages of grief, but I better identify with the five. Mind you, different doctors and psychologists may differ on what each stage is called, how many stages there are, and many other factors. The important thing to remember is that grief is a journey with some-what defined stages. How many and what those stages are, are as unique as each person that grief effects.

Any Helpful Advice?

In two weeks, I will be en route to beautiful Costa Mesa, California for The Compassionate Friends conference. My presentation is complete, and now I am just adding the final touches and tweaking it where it is needed. So far, I’ve shared it with my mom, my Lobster, and my co-workers (so I can get practice on what I want to say and my timing).

Now, my question for you: Do you have any helpful advice for presenting?

Any ideas on how to steady my nerves? Keep from crying (and if I do start, how to I quickly stop)? Or just a topic you think I should address?

You’ve all been so helpful for this past months, and I value all your opinions.

Happy (Belated) Birthday Jen!

Thursday was Jennifer’s birthday, her 20th birthday, and the 2nd year we celebrated without her. I opted to go to work, and did my best to not dwell on the circumstances of the day. I got teary-eyed at some points, but I didn’t let it consume me. I even wore my pink confidence shirt to work as a little extra niff-love.
