The core problem with the new DSM-5 labeling is best illustrated in this quote:
If as a culture, we don’t bear witness to grief, the burden of loss is placed entirely upon the bereaved while the rest of us avert our eyes and wait for those in mourning to stop being sad, to let go, to move on, to cheer up. And if they don’t - if they have loved too deeply, if they do wake up each morning thinking, ‘I cannot continue to live,’ - well, then we pathologize their pain; we call their suffering a disease. We do not help them: we tell them that they need to get help.
