People will try to comfort you in many ways. One of those ways may be to offer you aides to help you sleep or deaden the pain. For me, I chose to feel every bit of the pain that came my way because I believe that numbing the pain will prolong it and keep you from experiencing the depth of your emotions. The sooner you feel it and face it, you’ll have the courage to accept it and the painful void becomes tolerable. This is what I chose for myself. If you, however, are someone who may need some help in this regard, get it from your physician or other qualified professional, not a friend or family member.
