Broken up since his mam died

by Mary

I was dating my boyfriend 3 months when his mam died. He lost his job, had to move back home and deal with his all of this and his mam passing away. We have recently broken up after 5 months. In that time we saw each a few times but not like we used to,he did text and phone everyday.
We broke up two weeks ago and I am so upset as I really did love him. He tells me he is depressed that he needs to get better and that he loves me and I am to trust when he is better he will be back. I could not continue to be with him as I would not know when I would see him, he was shutting me out from everything.
I buried my own dad 6 years ago and it was one of the hardest things I ever had to do. I am in limbo at the moment as he we both decided there would be no contact but there is maybe twice a week. He has recently started to say he misses me in texts. I am just all over the place and I need some advice as to what to do?

Im sorry you have gone through this.

I too am going through a similar experience. Except my ex's mum is still alive but she is dying. After 4 months he broke it off with me saying he needs to care for her and cant have a relationship as its too much for him right now.

He ended it by saying wants to be friends and maybe we can try again down the track if i am still available and interested. The problem is its now been a month and i tried to contact him as a friend and he wont respond. So did he really want to be friends or does he want me to leave him alone? Its so painful being stuck in limbo.

I dont think they ever really realise that for us they died too!

I dont know how to move on either. Part of me wishes he comes back but at the same time its hard to let go and move on.
