You can always start with making a cushion for yourself some thing to hug when you’re feeling down x

Yes, I do. It’s like being in someone else’s house.
There’s such a huge empty space in my life now. It still seems unreal.

That’s how I feel, a big void, I was full on taking care of my dear wife about 20 hours most days, then it stopped after Norma died now, I am lost and very lonely

I know not looking forward to winter long dark night silent and lonely without him around and no one to share them with.
So alone with my thoughts memories and trying to hold it together. x

This will be my second winter without my dear wife, I live quite remote and don’t see many people over the darker days

Me, too, @Galaxy75. I am dreading being without my husband this winter. It’s been bad enough the lighter nights. Once the curtains were drawn, we were in our own cosy world, like you would have been. OMG, it’s a nightmare.
Take care. Xx

Thxs for your reply Deb5, its not been a great year for me, 1st I lost’d my mom in Oct last year, but she was nearly 90, and I knew she would go soon, still a shock, but it was on the cards, then in Aug i lost my cousin to cancer, he only in his early 60s, but the lost that has shocked me to the core, was the loss of G/F-friend, as I not see that coming at all and I was only chating to her less then 2 weeks before she died, ok her life style was not great, but she did look after herself I told her too, at times, but she was in Florida U.S I was in London UK, my plan was to meet up with her , maybe next year, but all that now has been taken away from me, the poor women was so alone in her life, she found me, which breaks my heart even more, I did not now how strongly I loved her till she died and then I just fell apart, I was broken in to little bits, and I have not been able to be myself again since then, your right people do not understand what we go through, the pain and hurt we suffer, my G/F was only 52-3 i’m 56, thats why I never saw this coming, look out for little signs that your hubby is still around near you, talk to him when you can, there will be little things to show his there, ie like you might be at home and hear his voice in the room, or feel a touch on you, yet not one is there, I have felt them, but it still don’t take away from the lost we feel, bless you.
