Grief Support Group on Seabrook Island

Have you experienced the death of a loved one and wondered how to live with your grief? Because each person’s grief is unique, there is no one or right way to navigate the waves of grief nor is there a timetable for grief. So what can be helpful?

Peer support groups are one type of help for those faced with loss. Many people find comfort in the companionship of group support, knowing they are not alone in their experience of grief, and having a break from the loneliness and isolation that is often felt. By listening to stories and perspectives of others, new ideas for coping emerge and this offers hope that one can survive loss. And it’s also not unusual for some comic relief to occur in the form of laughter and lightness. Grief is not a club anyone wants to join; once you’re in it though, there is a great benefit to feeling understood, accepted and validated by others. 

The Grief Group on Seabrook Island is a peer support group that meets monthly, usually on the third Wednesday of the month at 4:30 pm in the Eagle’s Nest room at The Lake House. Led by a facilitator, the meeting starts in a circle where participants are invited to share what is on their minds. There is no pressure to share if one is uncomfortable doing so. The meeting is then followed by a simple dinner with casual, friendly conversation for those who wish to stay. New members are warmly welcomed.

The next meeting is Thursday, December 15, at 4:30 pm, (instead of the usual Wednesday date) at The Lake House. For more information, contact Mary Fleck at 908-208-6640.

Property Owner Spotlight -Are We Fit Yet?

l to r: Carol Ann Hoffman, Mark Durinsky, Derek Fyfe, Joe Berttucci, Bob Alexander, Ray Hoover, Greg Saver, Mary Moore Hamrick, and Regina Cariello. Not pictured: Joann Gallivan

In 2016 a random group of Seabrook Island residents enrolled in a new “Fit Camp” class at the Lake House, and over 900 workouts later, they are still training together three mornings a week.

Initially, exercises were simple push-ups, jumping jacks, and dumbbell exercises, often using the Tabata method of multiple repetitions divided by frequent short rests. The intensity of these exercises gradually increased as the group became more fit. One member commented, “When I started, I couldn’t even do one sit-up or push-up; but now we often do a hundred or more during one class.”

When the Lake House closed due to the emerging pandemic in March 2020, they re-grouped and moved the classes to the beach. For two years, they remained undeterred by soaking rains, sweltering heat, stifling humidity, and sometimes bone-chilling cold; they kept working out with their imperturbable coach, Mark Durinsky. As no shared equipment was allowed while maintaining 6-feet of separation, only bodyweight exercises could be used. There were endless bear crawls, crab walks, army crawls, lunges, push-ups, burpees, and running forward, backward, and sideways. These new exercises often provoked near continuous commentary; “A hundred push-ups, you’ve got to be kidding; I’m not a runner; Army crawls kill my elbows; Are we done yet,” etc.

When the Lake House re-opened, still wary of COVID, the group chose to remain outside exercising in the driveway or on the back porch during rain, with routines now including weights, ropes, and even a rowing machine. They collectively carry, swing, press, and lift hundreds of pounds of kettlebells and dumbbells, strain under the persistent tension of resistance bands, and slog through incalculable meters on rowing machines. As they perform these tasks and run countless miles around the Lake House parking lot, their exercises are often accompanied by non-stop running commentary; “Oh no, we just did this on Monday; Are you sure this is good for us?” as well as frequent irreverent teasing of each other.

The group is adamant that their Fit Camp classes helped maintain their sanity during the lockdown, often providing the only chance for social interaction at times. While never taking themselves too seriously, they always take their exercises together very seriously despite the near continuous good-natured grief given by their patient, unflappable instructor.

Fitness and exercise first brought the group together, but like so much on Seabrook Island, their bond and friendship keep them together, and will continue to bring them back to the Lake House three times every week.

“We may not be building up huge muscles, but we are most certainly maintaining the ones we have, and apart from a hip replacement here or a back strain there, we seem to be in pretty good shape.”

“Are we fit yet?” – Definitely, fit for anything!

CERT Looking for Medical Volunteers

Seabrook Island Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) was established on Seabrook Island in 2006 when a number of concerned residents undertook and completed the FEMA-designed training through the Charleston County Office of Emergency Management. This all-volunteer organization is trained to respond to life-threatening emergencies when professionals are not available and to serve as support when they are available.

CERT is looking for volunteers that have a medical background.  They can be active or retired medical professionals and be willing to volunteer to assist with triage if an emergency situation occurred on the Island.

If you are interested in volunteering or know of anyone that might be interested in assisting CERT please contact Team Leader, Steve Pollock, at (516) 510-9029 or Denise Kotva at (843) 814-4551.
