Grieving on my own...
It has been about 6 weeks since my brother passed away. At first, my support system was outstanding. Cards, calls, meals, etc. from my friends.
My husband was very understanding for the first month. A couple weeks ago, as he was trying to get me "cheered up" he made a comment that really hurt. He told me "not to forget about my brother," but I really needed to get on with my life.
I thought about how insensitive he was being & then remembered that he has NOT lost anyone close to him, so there was no way he could ever know what I was really going through.
Since then, he really hasn't commented much nor has he asked how I've feeling. No hugs to let me know he understands...He has gone on with life, but I have not. I have litterally cried every day.
Not only am I broken hearted, but I have been worried about my mom & trying to spend a lot of time with her. Since he passed without a will, I am the one tending to his legal affairs. I have so much on my plate.
I know it will take a very long time.
