wrapped up in cotton wool

Postby misatok11 » Sun Jun 08, 2003 9:35 am

My gran has just died recently. My wife and my friends are reacting really strange towards me.
I am still in shock as i stayed with my gran for 16 years of my life. I haven't cried or anything, but this is just my way of handling it i suppose. My wife and friends are trying to help and being nice. The problem is they are being too nice and i just want them to act normally instaeding of trying to protect me.
Any advice?

just tell them straight up. No other way really. They will feel more at ease and so will you. Your all adults.

My condolences about your gran. Not crying does not mean you don't care. As you said, we all have our ways. Hope you are well.

Like Aldo said, just speak to them. Let them know that you are dealing with your grief in your own way.

My sympathies are with you at this sad time, i know how it feels believe me. We've had five deaths in the family since the beginning of February. Things will get better with time.

I'm with Donna and Aldo, just talk to them. I know this advice is probably a bit late! :roll: I'm sure they are wondering how to treat you and would probably just want to know what's best for you.

I'm sorry about your Gran, my thoughts are with you.

Take care,

Smile
