Wife upset over friends' behavior toward husband

(Continued)

In the meantime, there are support groups and family caregiver support resources for you to utilize. Many times it is a good place to connect with others dealing with the same or similar situations. At this moment both you and your husband both need to readjust to a new way of life and so do those around you. If you wait the situation may improve. These men may need time to adjust to your husband’s condition. If the lack of support and coldness continues then you have to decide if talking with them will make a difference in their behavior or if it is just going to be your chance to voice your disapproval of them. This could create even more tension so be very careful how your respond.
