Title: Grief and the Incurable Optimist - Making Sense of Grief and Loss
I share my journey with grief and my discovery of what grief is in my lifetime experiencing the deaths of so many loved ones since the age of twelve. When does grief end when loss is a recurring experience? How does a person cope with loss of a loved one with the impending death of another? How must we approach grieving and yet remain sane?
About our Human Book:
Audrey Yip is a mother of two and a retired Special Needs educator specialising in reading difficulties and Dyslexia. Often described by those who know her well as strong and positive she adopted the label Incurable Optimist. Audrey lost her husband, Jerry, to Leukemia in 2017. Six months later, in the midst of her mourning, her mother died from Pneumonia. Grieving over the loss of her husband was profound and confounding as she worked through the myriads of emotions and mental confusion. This prompted her to examine the phenomenon of grief where she uncovered new insights that helped her cope.
