Am I the only one who does not want to be bothered?

Why am I the only one not wanting to be bothered? Friends call me, text me, and I do not want to be bothered. My sister passed abruptly of lung cancer on, September 18, at 41. She was in the hospital for one month. Two weeks she was being treated for pneumonia, and the last two weeks, it was cancer. My friends don't seem to understand that I do not want to be bothered. I'm not being mean, but, right now, only God can counsel me.. Generic comments such as, "It will get better," or, "She's in a better place,.", are just words to me. Especially when we are left without our loved one, we are left with pictures all around our home, we are left having to clean out her house, and a room in my house in which she occupied.. I miss my sister so much! She was my all! My heart bleeds for my parents and my nieces and nephews who loved her dearly... When will it get better? I will continue to pray and be patient...

I think we all need that quiet time alone.  Peaceful time to just be.  Those words you mention bring no comfort to me either, so soon.  I just hurt and would much rather just hear them say they love me and offer to help me put things away.  My 16 year old son passed in December after a year long battle with depression.  Sometimes, I don't think it does necessarily "get better", and even though he may well be in a better place, it does not take away the pain of our loss.  I have, however, since then, seen other friends going through similar circumstances.  Unfortunately, I know precisely how they feel, in a way few people truly understand.  We are a part of God's specially chosen team.  I'm not sure why, but I know I can help someone else who's experiencing this excruciating pain now whereas I simply wasn't qualified before.  Perhaps with enough time to heal, you'll find God's meaning and purpose for you in this as well.
