Dealing With My Grief
About This Show
My name is Darwyn M. Dave, and I lost my father in April of 1978 when I was just 10 years old. Even though that was a long time ago, I have realized that I'm not "over" his death, but in fact I'm still dealing with it.
I've started the Dealing With My Grief blog/podcast to discuss how I have been coping with grief and bereavement since that time.
It is my hope that in creating this space I am able to connect with others who have lost someone close to them and in some small way help them deal with their pain.Read more »

Episode 118 - The Bare Essentials of Grief
5 days ago
No into/outro music today... Just the bare bone basics to produce this podcast. Why?... Because a listener wanted to know how to get back to "normal" after grief. What is the new structure of life or their day going to look like. Sometimes we don't need to put on the window dressing to mask how we feel in our grief. It's not essential to who we are and how we really feel. So I used no music in the podcast today to illustrate that point. While the structure of the podcast is different. the overall message is the same. In grief we feel pain regardless of what face we wear in public our how bubbly we attempt to sound when dealing with others. We don't always need to fit into some one else's expectation of who we should become after our grief. Just be you... whomever, you are in your grief. Just remember to take time to take care of yourself. Even if you take care of other's physical needs, work on your emotional needs first before reaching out to others... you can't help others if you dont't help yourself first. Question... How do you feel whem people tell you you look like your deceased loved one. I often want to tell people this but I don't know how it would make them feel.
