Engine Posted September 5, 2017 Share Posted September 5, 2017 So, my boyfriend's father is dying of lung cancer. He is currently in the hospital but they don't give him more than a few days to live. My boyfriend is already a person who hates showing his emotions to anyone other than a very few select people including me. He has been staying at the hospital for days straight and he barely eats as it is but he wont leave the hospital room at all. I try to bring him food but i cant always be there as i work and live about 45 minutes away from the hospital. I just have never dealt with death before and i have no idea how i am going to have to deal with my boyfriend after his dad passes. Like, he talks about it and knows it's going to happen, and has known it was going to happen months ago but he says he is just going to play his feelings away in video games (which i play with him) and i know thatss how he wants to cope but i feel like i should do something more? But he just gets mad at me when i ask him how he is feeling and i am a SUPER emotional person. Am i just to emotional? Should i just leave him alone for a while and just stop asking anything? I just have no clue how to deal with this and i don't want my naggin to hurt our relationship. Link to comment
