Ask Amy: Reconnection inspires worrisome conduct

Thank you for your writing.

– Grateful

Dear Grateful: Thank you. My own experience with intense grief has led me to frequently explore the tougher emotions, looking for ways to learn from them.

Grief groups like yours are a true lifeline – a safe place to mourn, to commune, and to form friendships forged from tough steel.

Carry on, move forward, and continue to support one another.
