Weekend Edition

What’s Your Grief is starting a new feature called Weekend Edition.  Right…you already got that part.

Okay so every Sunday we will post links to the interesting articles, posts, announcements, clips, etc that we’ve found throughout the week.  The only requirement is that it has to be interesting or informative to our audience.

Here we go, the links are in bold…

1.  Hello Grief featured an article about a wife writing love letters to her deceased spouse. We think this is a great idea and recommend letter writing for any type of loss; especially for those of you who already find solace in other forms of writing such as journaling and poetry.

2. The National Alliance for Grieving Children discussed TLC’s controversial new reality show Best Funeral Ever. While the show has many horrified, others think it’s a good opportunity for starting a dialogue about death and end of life decisions. What do you think?

3. Forbes.com posted Carolyn McClanahan’s final installment of her four part series on end of life planning, I’ve Accepted I’m Dying. Now What?.  Many who have experienced a loss realize how important end of life planning is, whether we’re ready to face it or not is a different story.  If you want to start at the beginning on this series go to How to die like a doctor.

4. NYTimes.com discussed how the American Psyhciatric Association’s diagnostic manual’s new criteria could lead to confusion between grief and depression.  Diagnostically, that is.

5. HuffPost Live hosted a discussion with Nancy Redd on maintaining a relationship with your deceased spouses family.  

If you have an article, post, announcement, clip, so on and/or so forth you would like to see featured in our Weekend Edition, please send us an e-mail at [email protected].
