Dear Les2
The best advice I received from a friend was “ do not isolate yourself “ it is not easy, at times you don’t feel like it , at times it is boring but it is good to keep in contact with people
Take care

Hi, you do sound in need of counselling and from my own personal experience it helps. Try Cruse or Sue Ryder just for the bereavement, it can get you over the hiding away thing that you write about. It sounds good that you have dogs to walk and normally people walking dogs talk to each other, perhaps going at different time or route would help you, I do know it’s not easy.
I think most of us on here have felt like you during our difficult grief times. The past years has been hard to think about the future or lack of it and you are not alone, I haven’t got back to doing normal things and don’t feel I ever will and anyway what is normal when we are grieving? Please look after yourself and we are all think of you. S xx
