When we first lose someone through death there are so many emotions that we go through. Loss, hurt, anger, confusion, frustration, to name but a few. We feel numb and unable to communicate to people. Others struggle to know how best to handle contact with us and tend to shy away to avoid this. Really, all we need is a big cuddle and to know that they are there to support us when we come out at the other side of this mass of emotions.
