Looking for advice and reassurance 😕 my dad passed away 4 months ago from covid and since then it has been the rollercoaster of emotions that we all are going through. What I’m finding really tricky though is my friendships and relationships with people. I know that for the first month or two I absolutely avoided contact with anyone who was not in my inner circle .. my closest friends. Now I feel like even some of them are drifting away from me and I’m trying so hard not to get annoyed at them, that maybe they just don’t know what to say to me. My brother-in-law and his wife live half a mile up the road and pass my house every day and yet I haven’t seen them since the funeral .. 14 weeks ago. I’m now at the stage I don’t want to see them because I’m so hurt. Some days, like today, I think I have brought this on myself and I shouldn’t have avoided people but I just couldn’t handle it at the time. Is it just me that is experiencing this? The whole issue is just another layer of hurt and sadness on top of the loss of my dad. 😢
