Continuing the discussion from About the Losing a partner category:
My husband and my two dogs died within a three week period back in 2017. My last surviving parent, my mother, died a year after that. I have no siblings and no children and my only family is one cousin who lives too far away to visit and with whom I have occasional phone contact.
I live alone in human terms and it is tough. I see people on this forum refer to family, their children, grandchildren etc but I cannot relate because have none of that. My only companions for 99% of my time are my two dogs. They are wonderful but their conversational skills are severely limited,
Has anyone else had to cope with the loss of their partner completely alone? How did you manage the bereavement and how do you manage life now?
