Images of America:  Norwich State Hospital Christine Rockledge Book Signing and Discussion;

Author Events

Preston Public Library, 389 Route 2, Preston, CT , 06365

Please join the Friends of the Preston Library at the library’s community room, 389 Route 2, Preston, on Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018 at 6:30 as they host author Christine Rockledge. Christine began extensively researching Norwich State Hospital in 2009 and allied with the Preston Historical Society in 2011. She will be discussing her book Images of America: Norwich State Hospital. Although NSH closed in 1996, the structure has continued to be one of Connecticut’s most notable historical landmarks, despite its ongoing demolition and redevelopment. Today, Norwich State Hospital is still alive in the timeless, emotional memories employees and family members share of what it was like to work and grow up in a place where employees were not just employees and patients were not just patients; they were family. This is a free event with light refreshments, signed books available for purchase. Please call the library at 860-886-1010 to register.

Bereavement Support Group;

Community

Our Lady of Lourdes Roman Catholic Church , 1650 Route 12, Gales Ferry, CT , 06335-1907

A Bereavement Support Group meets at 6:30PM the first and third Tuesday of the month in Our Lady of Lourdes Rectory Meeting Room.
The Support Group is a small group voluntarily sharing their experiences in going through bereavement and discussing helpful spiritual guidance.

The goal of our journey is to deal with new realities and find a new life that best fits us. Grief is normal and natural not a clinical depression or mental disorder. It is important in our journey to resolve our grief. Unresolved grief can affect us both mentally and physically.

Most common misinformation on grief that can hinder us from reaching our goal: Time heals. Only action within time heals. Some people wait 20-30 years to feel better. Grieve alone. Sad feelings should be hidden or experienced alone. Be strong. “Be strong for your family: don’t get emotional and cry.” Don’t feel bad. “Don’t feel bad his/her suffering is over.” Replace the Loss. Replace without grieving process: get on with life. Keep Busy. Get busy so you won’t have to think about the loss.

Recovery from a loss is achieved by a series of small and correct choices: Recovery means feeling better Finding a new way of living, without the fear of being hurt again Being able to enjoy fond memories without having them turn painful Acknowledging that it is perfectly all right to feel sad from time to time To talk about those feelings no matter how those around you react

Recovery from a significant emotional loss is not an easy task. Taking the actions that lead to recovery will require your attention, open-mindedness willingness and courage. * “The Grief Recovery Method : Guide for Loss” griefrecoverymethod.com
