My mum died last Friday and I have been left to cope with my heartbroken father and all the funeral arrangements. I have a brother who lives a long way away and although he came up for my mother's last few days he has returned home and left me to deal with it all. Last night there was a huge argument over the funeral date which came from the funeral directors. My brother left no instruction as to dates unsuitable other than his holiday. The arrangements are complicated with church service tying in with crematorium but the director spent all day coordinating the various parties and came up with one date. It is my niece's birthday - not ideal but I truly believed under the circumstances they would accept it as an unfortunate but necessary clash. No. Straight away my brother tried to change it against my fathers wishes. This has upset him and me as it will cause further delay to the proceedings. My husband intervened and told my brother to just leave it. He has, but I know they are criticizing me. I have now lost all confidence in my handling of the arrangements. This morning I just can't even get out of bed I feel so bad. I have been on citalopram for 3 years ( a long story) and have failed to get myself off them. I'm wondering if I need something else to help me cope.
