When can I expect my partner will begin to feel better?
AIBU to think he will never be the same again?
He is shocked and regretful following the death of his father ( sudden death).
We don't live together.
He is so angry and down. He is snapping at those close to him. He is a changed man.
He refuses medication or counselling.
It has only been two months.
He is pushing me, friends and family away.
He does not want to talk to anyone.I don't know how to help him.

Tbh 2 months isn't long at all. Mil was depressed and angry for around a year when fil suddenly passed away. Not saying this is how long your dp will be going to go through it. She was just fucked off with the world, not that he had a choice but angry at fil for leaving her

It's really hard op but all we could do is listen to her rant, be there to comfort her and support her through it

If you can be there to listen then do, it's hell when you have nobody. But only if you can, it's not compulsory.

How old were they when they passed and how old is your DH?

He is early forties. His dad was mid seventies, his mum was the 70.
