On top of the grief I felt absolute disappointment that not one single friend picked up the phone to ring me after my Dad had died and only one friend sent a card to me.
Any contact was strictly through WhatsApp. Although I have let go of most of the anger it still bothers me a bit to this day. What’s more is one friend didn’t come to his funeral because she had a blood test. I feel bad but I don’t really see this as a friendship worth continuing.
I know death is awkward for people to talk about but I get sick of people being let off the hook because they “don’t know what to say.” Perhaps I was expecting too much? I’m sorry that this is slightly ranty. Just wanted to get it off my chest.
I would have really appreciated some support from my so-called friends. Luckily I have very close knit family and we are all there for each other and for this I am so grateful.
