I was not prepared for the overwhelming, full-body experience of grief. Before my father died in January 2016 I thought I understood grief.
My father had been a hospice patient for almost 20 months and I had prepared for his death. We had had so much warning including some “near misses.” I experienced something called “anticipatory grief.” I cried so much in my car I joked that my car was going to rust from the inside out. It lulled me into thinking I had dealt with my grief beforehand. But I discovered that’s not how it works.
