Jennalee Posted August 31, 2010 Report Share Posted August 31, 2010 Has anyone had any luck with any books or workbooks on grief? I've purchased about 7 books on grief so far and so far the one I've found the most helpful talks about really feeling the pain in order to get over it faster. They encourage journaling and some of the exercises seem almost too painful, answering questions like, "What do you miss most about your spouse," "What did you not like about your spouse" and "What do you wish your spouse knew before they died?" Really hard questions to write about but I suspect somewhat healing in the long run. So far the only thing I've been able to do is write a letter to Ajay about how much this sucks and how much I miss him. I've also started talking out loud to him in the car. Other drivers think I'm crazy but it helps to get it out of my system. I'd love to hear what's helped each of you in your journey towards recovery.
