Q: Hi this is regarding my now ex boyfriend of over 2 mths. His mother died 10 mths ago from cancer it was a very quick death. My ex idolised her. my boyfriend didn't seem to deal with the death until about oct she died last April. He Cudnt sleep properly , didn't want to socialise and just wanted to work constantly. his work has always been a problem for us but we could talk about it . A few months after his mother died the family business got into some trouble and he was left to deal with it. And just seemed to push me away. Was always tired and seemed to have no interested I'm anything. He eventually broke up at Xmas when he seemed to be in a dark place.. he told me he loved me but could not give me what I wanted. For the first month after we broke up he would not talk to me . I saw him last week briefly and he looks exhausted from working and he says he knows he pushed me away. He was supp to call last fri to me but didn't because of work. He is responding to my calls and texts now. Does this sound like grief it is 10 moths since she died.. He has posted at or apartment that he would not come and collect. He told me last week he misses us together I asked him to talk to me to open up he just looks at the ground and says he can't . Should I hang in there with I'm just wondering is it grief.
