The following are articles on grief and loss by our guest writers. Some were written as a grief journal or as part of activities undertaken while attending a grief support group.
Writing about your experiences is an activity often recommended by grief counsellors and support groups. The following articles by our guest writers have been written by friends of ours and readers of this site who have experienced various forms of grief or loss.
We are grateful to our guest writers for letting us share their experiences and for their honesty and their positive outlooks. They are all inspiring and we’re sure that their stories will be of great help to those who find themselves in similar situations.

The following group of articles were given to us by Wendy, who lost her
husband to a brain tumour and then was diagnosed with breast cancer

grief and rebuilt her life. She is now in good health and making the most of
life. A true inspiration to all of us never to give up hope.
