I have concluded that due to grieving I currently have a mental impairment .
Its been written about:
J. William Worden, PhD, ABPP, was a Fellow of the American Psychological Association
and held academic appointments at the Harvard Medical School and at the Rosemead
Graduate School of Psychology in California.He wrote a book about grief and mental health, although subsequent issues following the loss of a partner have been well documented.Like depression and grief, trauma and grief share many of the same behavioural features. A number of articles discuss how they are similar and how they are different. There are some, like Rando, Horowitz, and Figley, who would subsume all grief under trauma.
Studies have shown that grief actually involves neural processes in the brain that can affect various parts of the brain and its functions, including affect processing, mentalizing, memory retrieval, visual imagery, and autonomic regulation – basically the inability to function normally .My own experience is that what it surmounts to can be referred to as a level of mental disability, including confusion , vulnerability, and inability to control my emotions with feelings of intense anxiety.
Is does have its advantages though and under the legal frame work of equality Act 2010 area of mental disability and human rights Act 1998 and 2000 I have initiated legal action on the DWP section of the Uk Civil Service
