My husband has lost a brother, mother and sister. He drives around with obituaries of funerals he’s attended (friend’s parents, etc). He has pinned his mom and god-mother’s obituaries up on the wall beside his television in our bedroom and now he wants to hang a memorial collage of his sister when we enter our home. Should I be concerned? It seems odd to me. I’ve lost a sibling and both parents so this type of grief is confusing to me. I feel alone.
I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about the losses your family has endured. Everyone’s experience of grief is a very different journey and I am sorry you are feeling so alone. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.
