The reality of shock- Zoe's Article

Shock is one of the most occurring stage of grief and one of the saddest, but you can help yourself or people around you who are going through this hard stage.(Sudden)

This occurs right after a loss of a loved one. You might deny the loss or keep on expecting them even though you know that they are gone. (Smith)

Shock is one of the first stages of grief you get. You will most likely fall short of breathe, your throat might tighten, and you might even lose your appetite. “Remember that although everything may feel entirely bleak, it will not always feel this way. Your reactions and behaviours at this time are normal and this is a terrible time; but you will get through it and feel better in the future.”

A way you can help yourself is by staying with family through this hard time. Another great way is to sleep as much as possible which will also help get your mind of it.(Sudden)

Don’t forget to help people in need around you.

The Drape Cloak Facility Log On Denial- By: Jonah

The Drape Clock grief facility has final starting researching denial as they had thought denial was a boring stage.However they were extremely wrong.

There first test subject was a woman named Sanger Applab who had just lost her husband earlier this year.”as soon as he found out we started researching” said the lead scientist.

The research begins:The first experiment Begins with Mrs. Pupplab trying to deny that she was denying but that would cause a paradox and the universe would cave in on its self.So then we tried to have tried for him to forget but we were fruitless.But a breakthrough was made that Mrs. Pupplab felt better before she started to move into the stage anger.

Our research is classified so we cannot share more.We also cannot research denial as we don’t want to affect anymore sad lives of people who have lose someone (Kessler).

The 5 Stages Of grief- Panic- By: Elizabeth


Panic is something that is often felt by those who are in stress, as this will lead to a panic attack. A panic attack/trepidation feels like a loss of control, the more severe the loss, the harsher the panic attack will be (Carbonell, Smith, Segal). You may be thinking that little things like a bad grade cannot cause a trepidation, but you would be wrong (Smith, Segal). Just because it’s small does not mean that you will not have an attack (Smith, Segal). But don’t fret because this is not life threatening (Carbonell).

One thing that causes these attacks is worry (Carbonell) If you are worrying about a test, loss of a family member, or even a loss of job then you have a chance of getting a panic attack (Bidwell). These are called mental problems (Bidwell). Another thing that causes these attacks is smoking (Bidwell). It may not be a good idea to smoke, as it can cause several consequences (Bidwell). When you experience a panic attack it may feel like the world is spinning and you may get short breath, because your blood pressure is beginning to incline (Bidwell, Carbonell).

As a matter of fact, a panic attack can happen out of thin air (Bidwell). It can happen anytime, anywhere (Bidwell). Panic attacks can get so bad that some people say that they would rather die than have to keep experiencing these attacks (Bidwell). It will feel like you have lost control (Carbonell) If you have the disease Syncope, then that will cause you to faint during a panic attack (Carbonell) But just remember panic is a trick (Carbonell).

Bargaining- Maddie pratt

Bargaining is a stage of grief that normally happens when you’re diagnosed with cancer. Most people who suffer with cancer start off by talking about “If I could…” or they stutter and talk like they haven’t ever had the chance to learn how to talk (Patricelli). Honestly, I think that this is the most pitiful part of cancer. It’s really sad that people have to go through this with cancer. This stage also makes you think that you have more power over everyone else (Patricelli). You won’t really notice it at first. You’ll start to notice your brain thinking differently after a few weeks. Once you get to this stage you will start saying things along the lines of if only or You have to…(Hibbert). This stage WON'T KILL YOU. Bargaining is one of the stages of grief that you go through. As you can see, Bargaining doesn't really affect much besides your brain. It makes you believe things that aren’t real. Like for instance, making you believe that someone could be brought back to life and that the people didn’t really die (Patricelli). Bargaining is really not that great for the people who have to go through this. It makes it feel like you're losing your mind!!

Happiness always comes at some point- dade neeley

“Grief is a natural response to loss. It’s the emotional you go through when something or someone you love is taken away.” (Segal). There are 5 Stages of grief. The 5 Stages of grief that people go through are: denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance (Segal). People go through the stages of grief because they don’t usually instantly accept that their loved one is dead and has been taken away from them (Patricelli). The stage I will be covering is acceptance. It is the final stage that people go through during grief. It is when the grieving person has accepted that the person that they lost, is now gone. After this step the stages of grief have usually ended for the person going through them. If you read this, I hope it helped you understand more about this process and what people go through to cope with loss.

Surrounded by sadness- Meredith Shumpert

Have you ever known someone with depression? So what is depression? Depression is a time when grieving people may cry, go through eating changes. Also in their sleep patterns. They might blame themselves for the loss. Some people get depression during a bad medical illness of them or a loved one .(Patricelli) Depression is a mood disorder causing a lingering feeling of sadness and loss of interest (Patricelli).

Now I will answer the question of how do you get rid of depression. One thing that people can do if they can’t take antidepressants because of other medicine is surround yourself with happy things and do what you can to make yourself feel okay. What you should never do is take antidepressants when you aren’t diagnosed with depression (Patricelli). Depression goes away when it is treated with the right medicine (Depression). Don’t be ashamed if you have to go to the doctor about this problem.

The five stages of grief-anger By: Madison Thompson

Anger is something that is felt often. It is just what most people would call normal.

Anger can be felt towards your diagnosis, or even your family or friends. A Lot, of the times the anger can go toward nothing. This anger, can, infact, have a major outcome on other people, and not just you. Often, you can blame other people for it. The patients feel anger like most people feel in general, but sometimes, the anger can expand and get more specific. As Kathryn states in the article, the patient might feel “Anger at the loss and the unfairness of it.” She also states that they might feel “abandoned” (Patricelli).

you have to be able to manage it in your marriage.There are several steps you need to follow. Tell them what you will not tolerate, remove yourself from the issues, consider therapy, and give the problem some time to resolve (Seagull). Manage your anger, and try to make it work.

Diagnosis are varied. You could go see a psychologist or a school counselor, and join a group for support. Some, that many people choose not to do is face your feelings, just like facing your fears. ( Smith).

in the final analysis, anger is something that can be very strong, but can be controlled. It has many bad sides, but many good sides.

Pain grevieng- Naomi Heng

There are seven stages of grief, one of those is pain. Pain can happen before or after being diagnosed (Although you). It depends on if you’re the one diagnosed or the family learning about it. The pain can be both physically and mentally, mentally as in how you feel and physically as in nausea, weight gain or weight loss, aches and sleep loss (Smith). You can feel sad, angry, or numb, but if it doesn’t go away, it may be a sign of depression (Smith).

There multiple ways to cope with the pain. Antidepressants can help some people go through the mourning process (Smith). Using drugs, alcohol, or anything artificial to numb the pain won’t do anything (Smith). Writing in journals, exercising, keeping feelings to yourself, or social media quotes can cope with the pain (Smith). An experienced therapist can help work through intense emotions and overcome obstacles (Smith). Crying could cope, but things don’t get better (Smith). Ignoring the pain won’t do anything because things get worse over time (Smith). All you need to do is to take care of yourself and know that the pain is there (Smith).
