Elisabeth Kubler-Ross of “5 stages of grief” fame has died

by Caleb Reading


Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, a psychiatrist who revolutionized the way the world looks at terminally ill patients with her book On Death and Dying and later as a pioneer for hospice care, has died. She was 78.

[…] Published in 1969, On Death and Dying focused on the needs of the dying and offered her theory that they go through five stages of grief — denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.

This can’t be happening. Damn you God! I’ll give anything to have her back. Life sucks. Oh well, whaddya gonna do?
