Is it wrong of me to avoid...

the phone calls from Hospice? They call like once a month to "check in" on me and it's more annoying than it is helpful to me. It just takes me to a sad place in my head. She just called again and I just stared at it and didn't answer.

Will she ever get the hint to give up? Or will I have to tell her? Or just keep ignoring it?

    I'd tell her that, while you appreciate the concern, the phone calls are difficult for you for the reasons you mentioned and ask if she could take you off her list of people to call.

     I agree.

    This! Especially at the holidays...you don't need another damn reminder that your mother has passed.

    If you don't want to talk to her about it and you have an email address maybe you can tell her that way.

    This is what I did with the American Cancer society... it was just too damned draining... Conflict avoided, and no more calls...

    I'd say if you get another one, it would be totally appropriate to say at this time you don't feel the need for the check-ins.

    Eh, that would bother me a bit too.

    They should look into sending cards. At least you can open those when you're ready.
