Re: Ups and Downs of Husband`s Mental Illness

Hearing you @Shaz51 

With so many vulnerable with serious illness, its best to do what is right for each individual.  You might actually gain more benefit from going alone, than worrying about your mother and Mr Shaz.  It can be more authentic than them stressing or doing it out of obligation.

Heart

Take a few of us in your pocket for company of the wake gets hard.  It really is about you and your uncle and sharing some of the grieving process with those present on the day.  It can be surprising.

Focus on your grief process, remembering his life and why you care, not only other people.

Lots Hugz.
