Working with cancer patients there have been countless times our doctors have to tell patients, and family members straight-out, with dread, sadness, and sorrow in their voices, you need to prepare yourself because we’ve done all we can do.


Working in oncology is downright difficult at times because you get so attached to both the patient and their family. I often get asked “How do you handle working in this type of environment day after day? I say, one word…God.

Grief Recovery Assessment Sheets

God Will Be your comforter


Sometimes, when we’re experiencing loss from sorrow and heartache all we want to do at the moment is push aside our grief so it can’t gain control and overwhelm us with its intensity.


Of course, this is normal, but the longer you avoid your pain and attempt to push it away, the more difficult it will be to process it and move forward.

How Long Will Sadness And Sorrow Last?


In all honesty, there’s no specific timeframe for grief. No two people are the same and every person grieves differently. You can not judge your grief to someone else’s.


So, that being said, whatever seems right to you is okay. Anything less is counterproductive. Just give yourself time and patience so your grieving process will go more smoothly for you.
