It was my daughter Zara's first birthday today but sadly she passed away the next due to serious complications. My heart is breaking but my husband has not talked or acknowledged her birthday. We have an older daughter called amber and we sang happy birthday to Zara but my husband would not. It's really hurting me but I don't want to talk to him about incase he gets upset or angry with me. I also write Zara a letter which helped me alot. Any advice would be good? Thank you x x

I'm so, so sorry. I can't imagine what this must be like. The thing is though, people deal differently with things. Singing happy birthday and remembering your deceased daughter's birthday may be too painful for your husband. Usually it helps to talk about things, but that could be really hard for him.

Thank you Chet. I think what your saying is right. As you say people deal with grieve differently its just really hard when he is carrying on as normal and I can't think straight. We are strong. I don't want to be angry with him.
