“I feel really down. I became a widow in 2018 and my siblings have changed…
My relationship with my sister was poor for years but became worse since my husband passed. Neither of us wants to resolve it and her anger towards me is palpable if I ever do see her.
I was ill in 2020 and got no support. My brother has been warmer but I sense he sees me as a burden. He would prefer time away from me and I don’t ask much of him anymore.
I notice certain friends seem to get irritated when I ring and whilst they warm up and we chat it’s initially quite hard. I feel lost and often very lonely. Any suggestions?” -Anonymous
