It’s also a place for you to indulge in a lighter side of grief, to seek relief, comfort and wisdom from those who’ve experienced it.

Have you got something to say about your experience of loss or sadness? A story to share? Would you like to find more about how to cope? Good Grief! is a page for everyone. You can contact Margaret here.

After all, we all know what grief is, even though we aren’t very good at talking about it.
