Dear Eilee

Thank you for sharing your story. I am sorry to hear about the passing of your dad.

I hear that you feel unsupported by your husband. It must be hard to go through this experience feeling alone in your grief. It is understandable that you are finding it hard to support your husband right now.

You are a strong person for taking time to heal and for prioritising your self care. I wonder if you are taking care of your basic needs, such as eating, sleeping and connecting with others. This link on the GriefLine site can help get you started https://griefline.org.au/resources/east-toolkit/.

These feelings of frustration, uncertainty and turmoil are a heavy burden to carry. Know that you do not have to make any quick decisions. It can feel like the ground has moved after such a big loss – it is OK to take some time to let things settle before you make any big decisions about your marriage.

You are brave for sharing your story. I know other community members will draw strength from your courage.

Please reach out to us by calling the hotline if you would like to chat. We are here for you.
