DON’T TRY TO SUPPRESS YOUR EMOTIONS

In the first days, there may be various symptoms of anxiety such as insomnia, palpitations, and boredom. Therefore, do not take sedatives, sedatives or alcohol, your sleep will improve within days.

If you are feeling very anxious, you can do breathing and relaxation exercises. However, if these complaints do not subside in a week or two, if they make your life difficult, if you have difficulty in coping, you should consult a mental health professional.

In the process, allow yourself to grieve and grieve for your loss, it is your natural right. You will need some time to feel better. There may be ups and downs with your emotions. Know that you are not alone, everyone who experiences what you are going through experiences similar feelings as you.

BE PREPARED FOR FAMILY REACTIONS
