Your husband thinks your'e grieving too long & it was only in December?! NO, you are not-as a fellow grieving person I am not giving a time limit for my grieving & everyone around me seems to support this. I think being involved in this support group will help you (and I) immensly, as it was not your husband's parent that passed away I guess you just have to let yourfeelings out here & try & stay close to him while not freaking him out about your grief. This is the place for you to pour it all out-I just joined & feel better to know all these people are going through this together. My thoughts are with you, Karen
Thank you Cheryl. I am sorry to hear that you are in the same situation. The only people that understand are those that go through it themselves. My friends and some of my family have become distant since my mom passed. I like to talk about my mom and dad a lot because it makes me feel like they are still close to me. I think that freaks people out a little. My husband doesn't understand either, he still has both grandmothers and both parents. His father did go in the hospital and get diagnosed with severe COPD recently. So when they had a disagreement one day I found myself crying my eyes out and telling my husband to apologize to his dad and tell him he loves him. Time gets away from us and life is too short. In the last 2 months I have grown more as a caring person than ever before. I look at people very differently. Thank you again for your kind words. Those words help me through another day. Feel free to contact me anytime.
