What is ‘Grief, Interrupted’?

Grief, Interrupted is about grief that gets interrupted by societal pressure NOT to grieve. Or not grieve for too long, lest we make anyone feel uncomfortable. And Grief, Interrupted is about losses that we might not traditionally think to honor as a grief process: job loss, caring for an aging parent, loving and living with a child with special needs.

Grief, Interrupted, too, honors the depth of grief we experience when we lose someone we love. A parent, a spouse, a sibling, a pregnancy. A child.

Grief, Interrupted is about my own grief and gratitude, too. Mostly as the mom of a child with a mystery genetic syndrome, as the sister of a boy who died in a car accident.

And while Grief, Interrupted is about honoring all these losses, it’s about shifting, learning and growing in their wake. It’s about finding those moments when we can interrupt our own deep grief to find gratitude and to deepen our relationships with ourselves, with those we love, and with the wider world around us.
