ConsiderGhese ohoughls by Debbie J. Thompson Owner/Funeral Director/CPC HEARTFELT GRIEF Death is a stressful event with the potential to place a great deal of strain on the hearts of those whom the deceased has left behind. This stress can be so great that it leads to a rare condition that mimics the symptoms of a heart attack. "Broken heart syndrome" (or "stress-induced cardiomyopathy") produces symptoms such as sudden, intense chest pain and shortness of breath. These symptoms are not caused by blocked arteries. Instead, they arise as a result of an enlarged heart that does not pump correctly due to the release of stress hormones that are produced in response to the emotions of grief and anger. Grief counseling helps deal with the stress surrounding death As survivors struggle to accept loss, it's natural to be consumed by powerful, complex and even sometimes conflicting emotions such as pain, fear, sadness, and anger. If you or someone you love is grieving, it's important to remember that there are many resources available. To learn more, please call or visit our beautiful funeral home. We have compiled a list of links to websites, support groups and other resources that can widen your support network and help you to come to terms with your loss, cope with grief, and begin your journey to recovery.
