1. Introduction

This topic has come about by chance. I typed in lungs after watching something on TV, and Google filter put lungs and Grief. Curiosity took over, I clicked to see what it might say and was surprised at what we found.

One of the things we discovered is that each organ is related to an emotion, and the lungs are related to grief.

Grief is something that can be hard to put into words.

There are many levels to grief:

  • Grief will affect you differently depending on who you have lost.
  • Grief can affect you differently depending on the circumstances of the loss.

There are many emotional feelings with grief. It can impact you in many ways, mind body and soul.

BUT never would we have thought that grief can affect your lungs.

We feel there was a reason we came across this. We feel this needed to be shared in case there are others like us who might not have ever known or thought grief can affect your lungs.

We just had to make this a topic.

Sharing matters like this are especially important to us. Anything that could help someone going through something similar or help someone who knows someone going through something similar is what we are trying to achieve.

The grief journey my sister and I are on is a grief we have never experienced ever before.

Mental Health and wellbeing is important as standard, but when there are factors in life that can compromise this, we need to do the best we can to hear and listen to our bodies and give ourselves the self-care and self-love we deserve.

We are living through extremely difficult, life-changing, life-challenging times with this worldwide pandemic this makes it even more important for us to try our best to be aware and take that care (we also have a topic on Lung Infection).

For these reasons, we felt it essential to do this as a topic.
