I lost my partner of two years 3 weeks ago. The funeral was only yesterday and I feel like I have taken a few steps back. John was a wonderful person and we were planning our wedding for this August. He was only 35yrs old when he died of a metastatic melanoma. No one knew that he had it and John didn't know either. I am finding it extremely hard to cope at the moment but I have to lead some sort of normal life for my 4yr old son. I am taking it one day at a time and I have my wonderful parents supporting me although I don't have the same support from John's parents, I understand that they are greiving too but at the funeral yesterday they never asked me if I was ok but instead sat with one of John's ex girlfriends all afternoon. I felt like such an outsider, I appreciate that I was only in their son's life for the last two years but I was the one who was greiving for him not the ex. I might sound harsh but their relationship ended 7 yrs ago. I felt so angry and upset with them that they preferred to talk to her rather than me.
This is making the battle more harder for me when I don't have the support of John's parents.
I hope this gets better for me....
