Example text

For the first few weeks Bridie is inconsolable. The family cannot not find the money to fly to Australia for the funeral. John’s wife says she can pay, but Bridie isn’t really well enough to go, so the family decide to all stay at home. Bridie starts to complain of pains in her chest and is taken into hospital. The doctor says she isn’t having a heart attack and the pains are caused by ‘nerves’. The family are all very worried about her and are not sure that they believe this. Over the next 3 months Bridie becomes more and more ­withdrawn from the family and starts to sit on her own silently looking at pictures of John when he was a child.

The bereaved person may, for example, be distracted by having to deal with family problems that arise f­ ollowing the death or in sorting out complicated legal matters relating to the death. The normal grieving process may thus be delayed and then triggered again (sometimes even years later) by a subsequent loss or by an event that powerfully brings back memories and reminds them of the loss. A further group of people may begin to grieve, but then remain very distressed, with this sometimes increasing in intensity with time; or the intensity may simply remain exactly as it was ­immediately after the death.

3). Depression can reduce motivation and capacity for ­self-management, and poor outcomes in people with comorbid depression and LTCs may reflect poor self-management. Patients are required to manage their LTC and may also be offered self-­ management approaches for their depression and/or anxiety. The increased burden of comorbidity should be considered when ­discussing self-care, which may not be appropriate for all. Regular contact will continue to be needed in primary care to monitor symptom level and progress and potential barriers to self-management.
