Meet Dr. Bill Webster
Dr Bill Webster is someone who knows about grief, not just in theory, but from a very difficult personal experience.
In 1983, Bill’s young wife, Carolyn, died very suddenly, leaving him to cope with his loss, and to care for their 2 boys, then only 9 and 7.
At first, Bill seemed to be doing well, and many commended him that he appeared “so strong”,
and “doing so well” at the time of the death. But that apparent strength was, in fact, numbness,
and three months after his wife’s death, when the shock of her sudden death wore off, Bill felt
like he was falling apart.
That was probably the worst time of my whole life.” writes Dr Webster. “Three months after
Carolyn died, I felt a thousand times worse than I had at the actual moment. And the worst
thing was that people’s expectations seemed to that, by now, after three whole months,
I should be ‘getting over it’.
What was wrong with me? Why couldn’t I ‘pull myself together’?”
