When someone dies all that you think and feel may be felt physically in your body.
For example when you are feeling really sad you may feel pain in your ‘heart,’ or when you are feeling frightened you may feel ‘butterflies’ in your stomach.
It is also possible to feel really tired, but when you go to bed you find that you can’t get to sleep because thoughts keep ‘running through your head.’
Dreaming about the person who has died is quite common and you may wake up feeling really sad or frightened.
Grief can also affect your appetite – some people find that they don’t feel hungry and others find that they want to eat all the time
