Grief, Love

Huntington’s Disease – Grief During The Holiday Season

Author Therese Crutcher-Marin

As some of you know, I call Huntington’s disease (HD), the cruelest disease on the planet.  It’s the Holiday Season, a time we celebrate with family/friends and, it can be a difficult time for HD families who have lost loved ones.  When I see obituary’s on folks who have passed away from a complication of Huntington’s disease in the holidays, my heart aches for the family.  (I’m also sad when it’s not the holidays) 

During the holiday season, whether it was a recent loss or one that occurred some time ago, feelings of grief can be heightened and may seem enormous. Griefland by Thomas Nadelin  (book on grief)

Experts on grief suggest we remember, new memories does not erase old memories. These memories are precious and can bring comfort to the difficult time.  Also, because we LOVE, grief is the price we pay.  It is a huge price paid!  (it’s not something we think of when we fall in love with someone, or our love for son’s, daughter’s, mothers, fathers, friends, etc.)

We Can Never Lose HOPE…..
