Y&R star helps others deals with emotions.

Share Your Feelings

The holidays are joyous for most, but the pace can be disheartening for those who have lost a loved one. Being married to famed counselor John W. James, co-author of the Grief Recovery Handbook, The Young and the Restless's Jess Walton (Jill) has acquired a few words of guidance on mastering the stress of the season.

"Realize that your feelings are all right and nobody can tell you what's inappropriate about them," she stresses. "Acknowledge them and get it out."

The sentiment is an inspiration to Walton, who taps in to deal with the loss of her own father. "If I think of a wonderful time I had with him and I never got to tell him that, I say, 'Thank you, Daddy. I loved it.' It keeps the connection alive."

Walton encourages those who may be having a hard time handling their emotions to seek assistance at Grief Recovery. "The number is (800) 334-7606, or you can get information at grief.net," she shares. "It's so important to have this information at this time of year."

Past Blast

Days of our Lives' Nathan Owens may soon begin to unravel

Look out Salem!  The Doctor is in the house, and he may even make house calls.

Nathan Owens came on the Days of our Lives canvas over the holidays as the new Dr. Cameron Davis (previously played by Schuyler Yancey) and he can kind of be referred to as the "man of mystery."

"Oh Yea! Without a doubt. I have issues that will soon come out," Owens said. "Let's just say that there are skeletons in my closet and some deep secrets, and soon everything will start coming to a (breaking) point."
