Members itstoohard Posted August 14, 2008 Members Report Share Posted August 14, 2008 My husband lost his father to pancreatic cancer last month. They worked together, socialized together, etc, so the weight of this loss on my husband is huge, more so than it would have been had they not been so close. There does not seem to be an aspect of his life where he does feel the loss of his father. I was also very close to my father-in-law, and although I miss him everyday and still feel a great deal of sadness, I do not know how to comfort my husband and it is causing me a lot of pain. He does not want to talk about it, he doesn't want to be comforted (with words, actions, anything). Sometimes it seems like he wants to act as if everything is totally fine, and other times, doing so makes him angry and upset. I don't know what to do or how to treat him...I realize it's only been a month, but I feel totally lost and unsure of how to treat him. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
