Experiencing the death of a loved one is the most stressful and emotionally traumatic event any of us is likely to face. While everyone experiences and copes with grief differently, here are some common grief reactions:
Finding it difficult to concentrate and remember.
No longer enjoying activities that used to bring pleasure.
The grief recovery process is unique to each person.
There is no set ``time table`` for recovering from grief; each person experiences the process differently. But psychologist J. William Worden identified four tasks of the grieving process that may be of help to you:
Accepting the reality of the loss.
Working through the pain of grief.
Adjusting to an environment where the loved one is missing.
