Grieving is Exhausting

June 7, 2022

We just shared this with a client this week because she is staying in bed longer than she ever has before. And it’s worrying her husband. And she’s been worried about it too because she’s said she didn’t want to get stuck in the debilitating depression. This exhaustion is so normal because grief consumes every fiber of your beam having to get out of bed, brush your teeth, make breakfast for your littles. This grief can make you feel the same amount of tiredness as if you would’ve run a full marathon because you are trying to live while grieving. And it’s consuming every cell every chromosome trying to go to biology and remember the parts of the body. Every hair follicle grief is consuming every pour in your skin. It’s   just  like you’ve been taken over by alien.
