This article is not necessarily about bereavement but it definitely shows that social support goes a long way.

That's quite true. After my father died, my mother became diabetic, hypertensive, her arthritis kicked into high gear, and she acquired IBS and lactose intolerance. Lactose intolerance? Stress and loneliness are killers. She was a mess for a few years. I managed to drag her kicking and crying through it. I made her go to a grief therapist; she'd been threatening to end her life. I told her I'd have her declared mentally incompetent if she didn't go. She believed me. I think it had something to do with my eyeglasses and countenance. She wasn't going on my watch.
