   Cruse Bereavement Care Isle of Man


After a death, you may initially feel shocked, numb, guilty, angry, afraid and full of pain. These feelings may change to longing, sadness, loneliness - even hopelessness and fear about the future.

These feelings are not unnatural or wrong. They are all normal reactions to what may be the most difficult experience of your life. Over time, these feelings should lessen. Every person's experience of grief is unique and influenced by personal circumstances.

We understand how difficult it can be to speak to someone about your feelings. Please don’t worry if you are nervous or upset. Just take your time. There is no rush. Talking to Cruse provides an opportunity to talk about grief in a safe and understanding way. Our volunteers are trained to listen.
