When friends start avoiding you after you lose a loved one.

After my brother passed away, my friends seemed like they cared for about 3 months. Now, they avoid me and hardly have anything to do with me. I wanted to start a group for this because I have heard that it happens a lot. It is so hurtful when we are already mourning a loved one, and people that we need the most, abandon us in our darkest hour. Also this is a good place to vent about what you have experienced because we can just let it all out.See More

I am deeply sorry for your loss, Melanie. But, i do know a great source where you can find the most comfort that helps me deal with the biggest problems we face. That source is God's Word the Bible. Revelation 21:3, 4 tells us that God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more.." It promises us that one day we will be able to see our dead loved ones again in good health and in peace.

Melanie, I am so sorry for your loss and even sorrier you had to join this group. My husband of 23 years passed 10 months ago and I hate every second of it.  Within this site you will find comfort because we are all grieving the loss of a loved one, our soul mates.  We are all in different stages of grief but we are ALL grieving.  Your grief will be that of a roller coaster ride  or as I call it the grief 3 step 1 step forward and 2 steps back.  As your journey progresses you will find who your friends are.  Unless they have walked down this path they truly DO NOT understand nor can they comprehend what we are going through! As we proceed with everyday life in limbo they have moved forward in theirs.  You will also find there are no timeframes in which you grieve or need to follow, it is all about you now and what you want or need to do for you.  

Come here often even if it is to read posts.  We pass no judgements and have all been in this early stage of grief and truly understand.  Hugs, Jane P
