I am feeling so helpless. My boyfriend's parents past away within 3 months of each. They were married almost 55 years and the family is VERY close and live close - actually my boyfriend has lived above them or with them his whole life (Italian family). In Dec 06 his father past and 3 months later his mother did, which really destroyed the family. He does nothing to help himself, went to therapy 3 times. But other than work, just sits on the couch, watches TV and sleeps. I have tried to get him to join this site and get into a breavement support group. I have my own set of major problems that I need to focus on but I want him so badly to seek out others that understand and he won't. I feel like I pressure him to get help but I just want to support him. I get angry that he just "sits" with this depression but I know he can only help himself when he is ready. He goes to the cementary all the time but rarely talks of his grief. Do you think it is best that I just leave him alone?
