My kids lost their dad in May, absolutely devastating to lose their father but for the last 8 weeks he’s family haven’t acknowledged our existence anybody else had this x


Dear @Sah28

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your husband and that your children have lost their father.

I can hear the pain in your post as to his family not acknowledging your existence. Grief affects everyone in a different way and for some it hard to accept their loved one is no longer around.

Grief affects the way we act with emotions and feelings, all of which is understandable. It could be that they are struggling with the grief and reality of what has happened and trying to come to terms with their loss also. As it is only 8 weeks since the loss of your husband, the feelings are still very raw for everyone.

Would it be worth you contacting the family to see how they are coping at this difficult time?

Please take care of yourself and your family.
