The pain of grief and loss can make you want to withdraw from others and turn inwards. You may feel isolated. However, support is available. There are 47 hotlines in California, United States that support with grief and loss. If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, you may find relief from talking to someone who understands:

  • An inability to find pleasure in the activities you used to enjoy
  • A feeling of deep sadness and emptiness
  • A feeling of abandonment by the person you lost
  • Feeling numb and cut off from your own emotions
  • Emotional exhaustion and extreme fatigue
  • Needing to be constantly distracted from the pain
  • Anger and blame directed toward yourself, others, or God for not preventing the loss
  • An increase or decrease in appetite
