I’m really upset right now. First off, I lost my mother a year ago in January to breast cancer. She suffered for 3 years with a rare form of the disease. I watched her dying in the hospital for 3 weeks.
My issue is with this person I was “dating”. He apparently thinks a year should be enough time to “move on” with your life. That I complained that I was “sad” every few weeks (what men might not understand is that pms plays a major factor in this for some women). That he had friends who have lost parents, and that after a certain number of months they were OK.
Well, every day I try to move on with my life after losing my best friend. Some days are better than others. Add some additional family issues and some days are worse. There’s no timeline for grief.
This person recently said that he thought we were just good friends and has been dating someone else. He neglected to tell me this for two months. Of course this has thrown me for a loop, considering it’s a “holiday season” when things are more difficult, my dad has been sick, and my grandparents were in an accident.
He attempted to give me this advice tonight to “move on”, and it made me extremely upset. I’ve literally been sick to my stomach this week due to all the stress that this has caused. He seemed annoyed with me that I would try to tell him how I was feeling.
Sigh. Please just pray for me. I need it.
