Dear Irene,

I am glad you felt able to put your post on here, as I know from personal experience, that things we need to say go round and round in our heads, sometimes for weeks, making us angrier, and when we finally try to say something, we are then struggling to keep calm. So, well done you, for using the rant thread!

Families are incredibly difficult to deal with, often there are just too many personalities contributing to what is meant to be a one to one conversation, and muddling the waters. You are suffering from a huge loss, and coping the best you can, and clearly very much thinking of other people and their needs too, despite how you are feeling, and have nothing to reproach yourself for, but if you need distance from your family for a while, then take that time, and come back to dealing with them later.

Yes it is easier to cut ourselves off, and ask for nothing, but it does mean we miss out on the love of our family, and the shared memories that only families can have, so in the long term, it is best to try to maintain good communication, for selfish reasons really, if we can.

I am sure your family all love you, and miss your Dad too, and we are here for you, so you are not alone. xx
