Members Kiki2466 Posted December 13, 2012 Members Report Share Posted December 13, 2012 I lost my Mom in June after a short battle with lung cancer. I took care of her in my home with Hospice support.Her death was very horrific and traumatic.Even as I was caring for her I didn't feel much support from some of my frineds, even my childhood friend who I have been friends with since we were 8 years old (I am 46 now).When it all happened with my Mom I was still working, I have 3 kids and I was doing what I could for my Mom. My husband was supportive.I have anger at my "friends" for not really being there before OR after.Some said they were coming to visit my mom and didn't show up.Nobody cooked a meal of offerd to let me get a nap..nothing.I'm the type person who had been there for them for YEARS over far less than the death of a parent and when i needed them they weren't there.Two days ago was the 6 month anniversary of my Mom's death and I posted on facebook that it was still hard and I was having a really rough time with the holidays and not ONE of my friends even replied. Not even my husband. Acquaintances posted nice things....but not my friends who weere posting other inane things but couldn't take two seconds to offer a word of comfortAm i being petty? I feel like people just get sick of you being sad and think you should "move on".I'm angry and I hate it. I put alot of energy into feeling resentful and I know it's just hurting me, but I can't seems to stop. I try to let it go but most days I am So mad.I don't know where the line is between depression and giref lies, but I think I may have crossed it.I just seem to hate the world and I miss my mom and it feels like nobody cares. Even my kids and husband. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
