My husband suddenly without warning passed away a few weeks ago at the age of 50. We had been married not quite 13 years. At first my friends and family were all there for me, I'm talking about the first week. I use to have friends that would call me every night. Now I have a hard time even getting a hold of them, or when we talk the conversation is rushed. If I even mention my husbands name I hear silence or they move on to a different subject quickly. I told my closet friend "I didn't die, I still need my friends." I have heard one person say they wanted to give me my space. I never needed space before, and I have so much of it now. Why would they think that? I just need people to treat me as they always have. I have all of you to help me with the rest of this, so I have tried my best not to let my friends see me upset or out of control. I hear from them that I am so strong. Strong about what I'm not sure. I'm just alive and trying to deal with what life has handed me. So what I would like to know, is anyone else having problems with their friends being distant at such a time of need?
