No one likes to think about illness and death, when we are well, we feel invincible and there is nothing that can prepare us for the shock and devastation of a terminal diagnosis.

How to Cope with Anticipatory Grief

Dealing With Grief and Loss - How to Mend a Broken Heart


What is it about Grief & Loss that upsets us so much? Is it the heavy duty emoting that we have to do to get through our suffering? Is it the fear we have about opening ourselves to all this pain?

A Critical Assessment of Euthanasia


The question of whether, say, a man should have the right to take away his life granted pain and suffering have overcome him is a very important question today.

This matter would have been laid to rest had it not been that it strikes at the heart of law, key matters of health, and morality.

Suicide - An Eternal Pain


Suicide is the one form of death that has quite a stigma attached to it. It brings with it a feeling of shame and betrayal.
