When someone dies all that you think and feel may be felt physically in your body.

  • For example when you are feeling really sad you may feel pain in your ‘heart,’ or when you are feeling frightened you may feel ‘butterflies’ in your stomach.

  • It is also possible to feel really tired, but when you go to bed you find that you can’t get to sleep because thoughts keep ‘running through your head.’

  • Dreaming about the person who has died is quite common and you may wake up feeling really sad or frightened.

  • Grief can also affect your appetite – some people find that they don’t feel hungry and others find that they want to eat all the time
