Dealing with the grief of losing someone or something is very important, one of the things that can effect someone the most is coming to terms with losing a part of their body. This is a form of grief that people rarely think about, yet it can affect a person just as much as or more than losing someone else.
A woman who has to have mastectomy, someone losing a limb or someone losing the use of a part of their body, even hair loss through cancer treatment, diseases or for any other reasons are all examples of loss.
Links to come hopefully if I can find any decent ones!
