I am sorry for your loss and sad to say that it is not unique. Your parents may be more open about their anger than some are, but it does happen. Such hostility is often associated with a survivor's guilt about something they did or did not do -- they are trying to externalize their own guilt feelings. I do not think this is the end of the relationship with them, but you may need space for awhile. Meantime, focus on taking care of and being a good parent to yourself. You've had a terrible loss, one that can rob life itself of meaning. Find a place, like a church or synagogue, where you can find a community of like-minded people and make good, in depth relationships, to help support you. When you have experienced more healing, you will be more able to handle the response of your parents.
