Hello Phil56

Everyone on this community has experienced loss and will understand and support what you are going through. You are not alone and everything is not pointless even if it feels like it right now. You are very much in the early stages of grief.

Hi Phil, in so sorry for your recent loss. It’s been 19months since my husband passed away aged 47 from multiple cancers only diagnosed 6 weeks before he passed.
It is hard the quietness,. Loneliness this site is invaluable and many people are here for you. Try and look after yourself and eat and drink. Your wife lives on in you’re heart and in your memories and there’s no timetable for grief you go through it at your own pace and in your own way. Take care x

That’s it exactly. It takes time, and you must get out of the house regularly
