My wife died at the end of last year. I’ve been doing really well getting through life without her but sometimes it’s hard. Those moments are infrequent and it’s always when I’m at home when something triggers it - never when flying or doing anything else that requires a sharp mind. It has been suggested that grief counseling can help. I don’t have ongoing depression - this is just missing her and being sad and lonely for short periods once a month or so, and handle that with exercise, socializing, talking about it with close friends and recognizing and accepting it. 99% of the time I’m truly happy. If I were to see a therapist or counselor, how will that affect my medical status, and next application for a certificate? I have a Class 2, although I only exercise Class 3 privileges and probably am going to go to Basicmed. I don’t want to be on any medications and won’t be seeing an MD or psychiatrist, so that should be off the table, anyway. Bottom line, will grief counseling result in grounding or denial of a medical certificate?
