I can home yesterday from shopping and there was a message from my friend saying her husband had died. I tried calling and calling her last night but got no answer, so I assumed she was with her sister or some relative. I called her again first thing this morning and got her, she said she had came home from shopping and found him dead on the floor and that she or the paramedics could not revive him. She sounded very calm and was talking as if nothing had happened, I asked her if she had stayed with her sister or someone last night and she said no she was home and that she had sent everyone home because she wanted to be alone.
I told her I was on my way there and she said no that she still wanted to be alone, I asked her what I could do for her and she said just be her friend and that she had everthing under control. My friend has a history of mental break downs two in the last 8 years, she does not handle extreem stress well. I don't know what to do, I don't think it is a good thing for her to be alone in the house where he died alone, but I can't force her to let me in. She sounds far too calm for someone who just found her husband dead. Should I force the issue and go to her home anyway or respect her wishes?
