I think anxiety and depression are common symtoms that occur with the loss of someone. If however, the grief is not dealt with it can lead to anxiety and depression that would require professional help.

I don't think I can think of any cases that I've known of, off the top of my head.

I realize that different people deal with grief differently.

Post Re: Anxiety disorders

Everyone's grieves differently. That being said: Trained professionals see it all the time, whether its grieving a death or a significant loss. Symtoms of anxiety, panic, depression and even suicidal thoughts can arise. I have heard people tell me they never grieved their loved one's death that occurred 10 years ago. Sometimes people have a tendency to avoid or suppress painful feelings that in some cases, if prolonged can lead to an anxiety disorder or major depressive episode. Some people after a death even experience Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. There are professionals out there that can help. Whether it be a social worker, counselor, therapist or religious affiliate. My point is there help for those experiencing these kind of symptoms. Hope this clarifies things a little.

Rachele, I think I can identify with grief lingering for years, or with it slowly building after not really experiencing a severe amount immediately after the initial loss of someone.

I think I've noticed these feelings accumulating myself, and it can lead to depression.

I think I can deal with my situation, but I think it was helpful to read your post mentioning those cases.

I think it is very common, and most of the time people just don't recognize it in their family and loved ones.

I have found that most of the time people don't want to or know how to deal with thier grief and they end up keeping it all in till they bust.
