Quoting BastiansMommy:" That's the thing...he isn't the only one who lost somebody. My great gramma died the week before his ... [snip!] ... new game.We've watched every movie we own, and my mom can't baby sit for us because I can't pump anything. It's frustrating :/"
How old is your LO? I am very sorry to hear about both of your losses! I know its definitely not something easy to deal with, (I lost my dad to suicide, which will be 3 years Dec 20th, and it still sometimes feels like it was just yesterday when I heard the news) I know that doesn't mean I understand the situation you are in, just that I do know it's very hard for you both right now. I definitely agree it HAS to be frustrating especially since not only did he lose his family member but you lost your's just recently as well. I wish that I could find a solution for you, and give you better advice then what I have. Is there any time at all that he is off and maybe you could get your LO in a stroller and pack a cute picnic or something and maybe go for a walk on a warmer day after he is off? I know that wouldn't be much but maybe a walk around the park or something that way you can spend time with each other? I also can see where that would upset anyone to talk about a loss! It still upsets me to this day at times to talk about it, even though I often try not to show it. I know it's hard and it doesn't feel like it will get ANY easier at all right now
. I wasn't with my SO when his dad passed 5 years ago, but I know his mother said to me that after his dad passed that he was 16 and he went on a ranting rave and acted out in school and got sent to jail for fighting and all kinds of other things she couldn't understand why, until she found a letter he wrote to I think his dad or someone like that (he wasn't going to give it to anyone) but it was talking about how angry and things like that he was, and she saw that getting in trouble was how he was dealing with it. Maybe he is just distant right now because he doesn't know how to cope? I was very distant and I was a zombie once my dad passed, I got into some drugs, and I got into trouble stuff I'd never done before and it was my way of coping. I can't say for sure if this is why or anything like that, but maybe it could be. I know this is a lot to read, if you want you can feel free to PM me anytime, if you just need someone to talk to and what not, I'll be here
