Hey Shannon! Relationship Question for January 28, 2014

"Hey Shannon, both my parents have passed away in the past year. Now I need time to grieve. I don't want to be alone, just left alone. But my husband is constantly hugging me, stroking my back, and asking me if I'm doing okay. It's not helpful, just annoying. He's also starting to do the 'I need attention, too' thing. How can I convince him to give me space? I don't want to hurt his feelings, but then again, do I even need to worry about his feelings right now?"
