Although bereavement affects us in very different ways, the experience of others may help us to acknowledge and face the reality of our own feelings, while reassuring us that coping with the loss in our own way is acceptable and normal.
If you are caring for someone affected by encephalitis, it is important to acknowledge that this is likely to have a significant effect on you, and you too will need support.
