Feeling Disconnected and Alone
My Mom died in Dec. 2010, exactly two weeks after her 99th birthday. She lived with me for four years prior to her death but I also cared for her while she lived on her own before moving in with us. I am so very disappointed in my so-called friends. Although I received a lot of support initially, not a single person has asked how I am doing since January. I feel anxious, sad, vulnerable and angry. I feel as though I am being judged as being weak and needy. Sometimes I feel that I am going to explode. I'm wondering if these are normal emotions and what to do about them. I feel that I am back in high school with the roller coaster ride of emotions. Do I drop these people from my life since the support is simply not there? Thanks for providing a place to vent!
