On past episodes of the GreenHouse FX Radio Show, we've talked about dealing with many emotional issues and dealing with changes. But tomorrow night, I am going to continue this "mode" of transparency" and examine "The FX of Grief and Loss" - defining grief; understanding the stages of grief; ways of finding support; and learning how to take care of yourself. I understand this will be a very emotional topic... maybe even one that I won't be able to handle, but I am willing. So, I hope you can join me tomorrow night, perhaps even call in and share your thoughts, feelings, and/or ways that you have dealt with grief and loss, I know it will help someone else... that is the Power Of YOUR FX.
Also it's Back-to-School time, so we continue to look for preparing your child and yourself for the new school year... what are some ways YOU get prepared? What's the latest news in the Presidential Race of 2016? Finally, (as we always do) look at race relations in America. Julian Bond is featured in the ?#PowerOfYourFX? segment.

According to the AAVA, Americans owned more than 157 million pets in 2012. Americans LOVE their pets! A big problem with pets, however, is that their lives are shorter than human lives. We love them, and lose them far too soon for us. How do we deal with losing them? What do we need to do in order to grieve their loss fully, and then go on with our own lives? What do we do about getting another pet? Russell Friedman and his colleagues, author of The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss, is an expert in grief and applies his understanding to the very real grief we human feel when our pets die. Russell and co-author John James have created the Grief Recovery Method, shared with you when you listen to Full Power Living.
So many people preface the report of the deep grief they feel after the death of their dog, cat or bird, with “I know I’m being stupid/silly, but….” It turns out that grief is grief, and grief felt over the death of our beloved pet is no more silly or stupid than grief we feel over the lost of a person we love. Who better to discuss this with than someone who is an expert on all aspects of grief? Listen on Thursday as Russell Friedman talks with us on questions most of us have when we suffer loss.

The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss: Russell Friedman
Your relationship with your pet is special--it's a bond that is very different than those that human beings share with each other. When a beloved pet passes away, people often resort to incorrect mechanisms to deal with the grief, such as trying to move too quickly past the loss dismissing the real impact), or even attempting to replace the pet immediately. However, these are merely two myths out of six that the authors discuss and dismantle in The Grief Recovery Handbook for Pet Loss. Based on the authors' Grief Recovery Method®, this book addresses how losing a pet is different from losing a human loved one, and ultimately, how to move on with life.

Show Topic: The culture of addiction and recovery is rife with experiences of grief and loss for the person struggling with addiction or striving for recovery. The nature of these experiences combined with the stigma, shame and general lack of understanding of addiction can make grief and loss associated with addiction lonely and difficult to heal from. The treatment setting can provide an effective healing environment for dealing with past or current loss and grief. We must also learn to deal with this experience outside of the cocoon of the treatment setting. We'll review the various stages of loss and grief, recount some personal experiences, and how as providers we can better help clients through this experience.

Below are some of the most frequent questions we get at www.deathofmypet.com We will go over the answers to these questions about pet loss and how it affects those of us who are are suffering.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT PET LOSS
& THE GRIEF OF LOSING A BEST FRIEND.
How is it possible that I am sadder with the loss of my dog than with the loss of close family members?
For many people the love and companionship of a pet may be the only or certainly the strongest bond of unconditional love they have experienced. It is also possible, like many of my clients, which you have been strong and practical while caring for ailing parents or friends. But suddenly, your best friend and closest companion is dying and it is the last straw on a pile of buried emotions. It may be that your pet was your “safe place to go and soft spot to land.”
2. I feel like I am going crazy. Am I ever going to feel normal again?
Yes, you will feel emotionally better but different than before. You will eventually remember and rejoice in the many happy times you had with your pet. You will be able to reflect on the many life lessons you shared.
3. How long will I grieve my pet?
All of our emotions are individual. When we love deeply, we grieve deeply. Grief coaches often say that it takes about a year before your loss is the first thing you think of in the morning and the last thing you think about at night.
