Do you believe grief goes through the five stages usually recognised or has your own experience differed from this?

If you are not sure what these are, here is a useful wikipedia article that explains them:

I think it varies. Each person I have lost (including my own children) has had a different impact on me. Each time I have a different reaction. I don't usually notice all five stages. (Though when my friend, Jen, passed away in 8th grade, I clearly went through all five stages.)

I tend to agree, I think it can very a lot between people and circumstances. Some losses have hot me harder than others and I have gone through definite stages, others I don't feel that I did.

I don't really know. I've never gotten past anger and bargaining. I hope to reach acceptance eventually.

I believe in the traditional model, I used to be a therapist, so it's my training. But people move forwards and backwards, slowly and quickly, so there is a lot of individual variability. I breezed through denial and bargaining in about 5 minutes when we learned we couldn't save him, but I'm still pretty angry.
