LMKWICD is an acronym for “Let me know what I can do”, and it’s a super sweet sentiment. I know you mean the very best when you say it. I appreciate it and I appreciate you.
But when it comes to grieving, it’s sort a solo adventure. At least for me. What you can for me is this: create a space for me to be normal. Treat me like you’ve always treated me – let’s joke over drinks and sing karaoke and eat with each other.
Even if my appetite isn’t normal.
And when I’m ready to talk about it, to let it pour out, I’ll let you know.
