grief does what to my brain?

Grief can be all-consuming. It’s no wonder that grievers frequently feel overwhelmed, unable to find the right words, have difficulty making decisions, and often the simplest of tasks that would usually take a couple of minutes to complete, can take significantly longer.

The world often feels completely different and yet it seems to be the same for everyone else which is very SURREAL.
