  1. I read the following under 5 "common experiences of grief." Initial awareness and safeguarding are the first two. Restructuring/restoration and growth are the last two. The middle is "Awareness-Anguish and Despair-These intense periods of grief happen as the full significance of the loss is realized. Awareness is grief's darkest hour. Periods of awareness include intense waves of longing, loneliness, anguish, despair and sorrow." This seems to be where people are that are coming out of the fog...around 6-12 month period. Is there a way to get to restructuring and restoration? This is beyond painful and hard to function. Every day tasks seem to be impossible to get through or even start. Is there anything we can do to get to restoration in a smoother or easier way?
