Hi Jim

I lost my wife about 20 months ago Dec 2020, in the early days the grief was horrendous, there is some hope that it will get easier for you, I have found the grief won’t go away but is easier to deal with. I think everyone who has lost someone close feels the same way, and of course were all broken hearted.

Take care, Barry

Hi Jim, I am relatively new to this site too so I’m still finding my way around. I do know that it is a great source of comfort and a place to express yourself without judgement. There are lots of helpful suggestions and understanding from others in a similar situation. Take care. Xxx

Hi Jim,
Wow sixty four years, there must be some beautiful memories of the two of you, so sorry for your loss.
I personally believe things will improve, it is three months since my Carole passed away and even in that short time I have felt better.
With the help of an audio for night time I am sleeping more and the horrendous feeling I used to get when waking and the reality of things has lessened.
As Susan said this forum is a comfort, I also have a telephone chat from Crus Bereavement which helps me understand my emotions better. For the first few weeks I honestly thought I was losing my mind but realise it is part of the grief cycle.
I found reaching out for help and just chatting all made me a little less anxious and not quite so sad.
Wishing you well
