Form the Document: "Mourning is also a process of adjusting to practical changes the loss has created. People have to find solutions to simple everyday things will find solutions to simple everyday things like who will take out the trash, or do the laundry, things they may not have been used to doing and may not want to do. They need to find new ways to spend their time, especially if they have been spending a lot of time taking care of their loved one. They may need to find someone new to confide in. Mentally they need to find ways that they can think about or 're-visit' memories and feelings about the person who died including their death, and rethink thoughts that are highly painful. Making these changes is not easy, but people can feel a sense of satisfaction and even pride, as they begin to figure this out."
