Grief and Isolation

Why do we isolate ourselves in grief?

Because you cannot bear my grief and I cannot bear your normalcy…your posting vacation photos on Facebook, your going to baseball games and work, your telling me that you went hiking over Labor Day weekend when we were talking with the nice hospice lady in the hospital room that smelled like disinfectant. Because I don’t really feel like hearing you tell me how your 85 year old dad (who is not a nice person) was just in the hospital, got a pacemaker, and came out healthier than ever.

I guess that is why.

    I think at times we all need to withdraw and feel what we need to feel. You are being thought of daily. Hugs.

    Hi I had read your posts on the pcnsl forum and i went thru an eerily identical situation with my dad so i empathise but also felt I had someone who if they knew would know exactly what i went thru… Its tough and no way to ease it..hang on.. I loved my father too and it hurts… So badly.
