Supporting family

One of my sons and his two children live with me. When I am feeling emotional about my husband not being here it inevitable upsets everyone else. We try to support each other but I feel as though I am suppressing my feelings for their sake.


Hello Prebsue, it is so difficult trying not to show your grief in front of family members. Our son lives next door and I’ve tried really hard not to cry in front of him but sometimes he’s come round unexpectedly and found me sobbing . So upsetting for all of us and not a chance of a hug , even. Do you have friends you can talk to, I find it easiest to talk to a couple of friends who have also lost their husbands, so understand. Nobody can until
it’s happened to them and the trouble with our families is that they desperately want us to be all right, but we can’t be. Sending lovex
