Grieving support with your spouse

Is anyone experiencing a lack of emotional support from your spouse. It has been almost 4 years after losing our son. I feel alone in my grief. He compartmentalizes a lot. I understand that we all grieve differently. When I cry or having a rough time, he doesnt hug me or comfort me. He is a good person. He is emotionally disconnected. He does not recognize ques to say to himself "I should hug her. " Very frustrated. Been in counseling since my son died. I am a strong person and solve everyones problems. I know I cant solve this. I need emotionally support. Any pointers are welcome.


Hello @LalosMom ,

I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. Thank you for sharing this with us. I’m just giving your thread a gentle, “bump” for you - hopefully someone will have some thoughts to share.

Take good care,
