After losing a loved one it is incredibly hard for anyone to cope.

But one woman has told how her brother was sick for weeks ending in his death.

She believed her husband would be there for her after losing her sibling, but told how she was "appalled" by her partner's reaction to finding out about her loss, the Mirror reports.

The woman shared her story online, asking people for people's thoughts on the matter.

"My brother passed away two weeks ago. He was in the hospital for weeks," she wrote on social media.

"He was very sick. During that time I was very stressed out and worried a lot. I was busy with work, the house, my son and my brother.

"My husband works from home. I work long hours. When I got home from the hospital I argued with my husband about an issue. Instead of talking to me like an adult he suddenly stopped talking to me and started texting me saying that way we can have a civil talk.

"Whenever I ask him to do something or ask him about our son he'd stay silent and type his response in a text then send it to me. He only talks to our son.

"And has taken over house chores but he doesn't talk to me directly. I'm not gonna lie it made me feel awful because at the time I really needed to talk to somebody and he was being unreasonable."

In the Reddit post she said she ignored her husband's behaviour as she thought he would stop eventually, but he didn't – not even when they got the call.

She said: "Two weeks ago, at seven in the morning, I received a call from my mother telling me that my brother just passed away. It was an awful devastating moment for me.

"I was in shock but calm enough to give my husband the news.

"I told him my brother just passed away. He was still in bed at the time but was on his phone.

In the post she continued: "His reaction was that he looked at me for a few seconds. Then started typing on his phone.

"My phone was still in my hand when I received a text from him. Saying 'I'm sorry' and that's it.

"Didn't speak to me even after hearing the news. I didn't expect he'd do that. I lost it. I blew up at him and I started crying. I called his behaviour unreasonable and his reaction to this devastating news was awful."

Her husband then tried to apologise but she wouldn't talk to him and instead went to see her mum.

He was advised by her mum not to "lash out" at her partner as it won't solve anything and is now questioning whether she was right to argue with her husband.

More than 1,000 people responded to her post, with many reassuring her she had done nothing wrong.

One wrote: "This is horrifying. I lost a sister a few years ago. I was in shock for an hour or so after.

"A woman pumping gas came over to me, asked if I needed help, and when I said my sister was dead, she embraced me and cried with me for several minutes.

"A complete stranger in a dark parking lot offered me more love and support than your husband.

"The man is a complete monster."
