Thanks for this series and this one in particular. I find both hope and comfort in your words and the reality they point to. I have also benefited so much from being able to name ambiguous grief *as* grief and own it as such.

This is a word. Thank you! In our journey with severe chronic pain it has been incredibly helpful to begin to understand and use the language of grief for the losses we experience.

I’ve so much experience with ambiguous grief that I feel numb when the normal flavor comes around.

Started reading The Myth of Closure this morning. Thank you so much for the recommendation. I began my ministry as a Christian counselor this year and I can already tell in the first few pages this book will be so helpful to me and those I counsel. 🖤
