The holiday season is a stressful time for anyone, but if you're also grieving the loss of someone close or far to you, it might be even more difficult to know how to "get through" this time of the year. I realize all of you have had very different experiences, different losses, due to various reasons, a long time ago or just recently, but the point is grief isn't specific to any of those. These are just general links, some are specifically for having lost a child for ex. or about a certain way of having lost someone, but I think the general message is what's important. If you know of some ideas on how to survive the holiday season while grieving or have other links that you think might be helpful, please post them here.
