Anyone else get this, someone you know asks how you are, so being honest I say 'not really' and they say 'why, have you been ill?' And when I say 'no, I've been grieving' I get this look like I shouldn't be talking about it or I haven't got the right to say I'm not OK because it's ''only grief'.'
I'm getting so pissed off about this response.

I appreciate their concern. My response is that I'm doing ok. The grief I have is real but considering the circumstances is to be expected.

I think it's two fold. A reminder of mortality and the unknown and secondly the inability to sooth the the pain. There is nothing that can be said or done to make the grief better especially if they have not experienced it. There is a fear though that something said or done could make it worse.
