E203 - Heike Mertins - Grief is…

September 18, 2021

Heike Mertins is an author, blogger and speaker. She is the author of “Grief is...Thoughts on loss, struggle and new beginnings” (2017), which chronicles her journey through the bizarre, frustrating and at times humorous world of incomprehensible loss. Following the death of her brother and husband, Heike began to document the process of loss, emotion and healing that accompanies a momentous life change.


In this episode we talk about the death of her brother, husband, and mother, the little things in grief that are not talked about, her book about grief, sleep changes and triggers after loss, humorous aspects in grief, and grief dreams of her husband.
