If you’re working in entertainment and you are dealing with a death or you are  trying to deal with either the illness or the end of life of someone close to you, it can be difficult or impossible to take sufficient time off to cope with the loss and sadness such life events present. Inevitably, this can take a very great toll at an already stressful time.
