MyNDTALK - Grief and Recovery - Candyce Ossefort Russell

Loss is brutal. Grief is agonizing.
And when you're grieving, everyone has an opinion about how you're supposed to make your way through the experience of loss. Even you might have ideas about how your grief process ought to go. Almost everyone thinks there's a correct way to grieve. But that's simply not true. What is true is that our society is death-phobic, and our collective fear of facing death and loss perpetuates some hurtful falsehoods about grief, like "grief takes a certain amount of time," or you need to do specific "grief work" to be okay." Candyce shares her personal journey and professional experiences during this conversation on MyNDTALK.

MyNDTALK - 911 Loss - Survival - Lisa Luckett

This story starts in wreckage in the of events of September 11, 2001. As the dust began to settle, my children and I received a vast outpouring of love and kindness from friends and strangers both near and far that kept us going in those early days. But that was only the beginning. Life went on -- and we did too. With the clarity that only comes with time, I realized that the resiliency and beauty of the human spirit that emerged from 9-11 were only the tips of the iceberg of what we could be. I vowed that I would not let my husband, Ted, and all the others die in vain by making something good come from this nightmare. This is the story of how I healed myself as the first step in my plan to heal the world.
