Pierce Brosnan: 'I don't look at the cup as half full' – star's 'overwhelming' depression

Some researchers have also defined three stages of grief which are:
The first, numbness, typically lasts a few hours to a few days; essential things get done, but most are poorly remembered; anxiety and depressive symptoms may begin.

The second, depression, lasts a few weeks to a year; irritability and restlessness are prominent, but all depressive symptoms commonly occur.

The third, recovery, often begins within four months after the loss of a loved one; the bereaved accepts the death and returns to some earlier level of functioning.

However, it is important to note that in reality, little evidence exists to support the above stage theory of grief. It cannot be said that all individuals move through such stages in an orderly way.
