    This book is amazing! It was a relief to find out that there's nothing wrong with me when people try to cheer me up by saying things such as "everything happens for a reason" or "don't feel bad" I just get even more upset. This book deals with all kinds of losses, not just death, and the exercises are very helpful. I'm looking forward to completing the relationships with a number of losses in my life. The writers' experiences and advice they share are extremely helpful. Give it a chance if nothing else seems to help you.
