My husband died 16 months ago after being ill a long long time. I believe I had anticipatory grief because after the initial shock that it had happened I have not really cried. My daughter has also had cancer so I have had to focus on supporting her too.
Now during lockdown because she is shielding at home I am totally on my own but I have been able to volunteer remotely, and really enjoy it.
However some of my friends I am in contact with remotely are showing disapproval that I am doing this and if I mention it, which I do as it is so much part of my life at the moment, refuse to comment or discuss. I note that it is the older men who are like this, husbands of friends or the like.
Can you understand the mindset because I don't?
