Mourning The Loss Of Oneself

Dominique Bulthuis

Mourning is a natural, yet dreadful, part of life. Losing a loved one, harsh and cold grief will flow over you. The idea of mourning yourself is an unnatural thought, one cannot grieve the death oneself. The life of someone with chronic illness is everyday mourning of their own self, knowing to be never seen again.
