I can relate well to that @Razzle. I too have a pretty hard time with trust and have some strong defenses up.

I guess that icy defensiveness is part of this grief stuff for me. I wasn't always like this. I used to trust easier, be more relaxed and optimistic and I was a whole lot less bitter. Sometimes I really dont like the me I am now and I miss the way I used to see things.

Its complicated and difficult to try and challenge something that has protected us but can also impact us in an unhelpful way. I hope it helps that husband now understands better.
