We are all touched at some level by loss in this COVID-19 pandemic — from the loss of our freedom to walk on the beach or connect with friends, to the loss of a job and an income or, more tragically, to the loss of a loved one. The restrictions put on us during the pandemic make the feelings of loss all the more difficult to cope with. Psychotherapist Megan Devine is an author and lecturer who has written about grief and how to help those dealing with grief. Her book is called “It’s OK, That You’re Not OK.” She joined Midday Edition on Thursday, April 23, 2020.

Now, as always, the very best place I know to connect YOU with other grieving folks is inside the Writing Your Grief community. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there is always someone there: when you feel invisible inside your grief, these folks see you. When your friends have their own sh*t to deal with and you can’t lean on them, your WYG family is there. I mean it folks, this community is unlike any other place – online or IRL. The May session is open now and we’ve got room for you. Follow this link to join us, and pass it on.
