Watch out for the brain fog and the physical effects of grief. I used to sleep so well. Since he died it is a couple of hours a night until my body just says that’s enough and allows a bit more. I found lists essential. I find the isolation is the worst for me. The closest is a 4 hour drive and I have arthritis in my knees, hips and back which means I am not very mobile. Doing the housework is a challenge and I don’t drive any more. I try to focus on the positive. How wonderful the time we had was when we were together. I was lucky enough to have had 50 years. Xx


@Adam2 so sorry for your loss, I lost my partner Christine almost 12 weeks since suddenly :cry: it’s all so raw and it’s tough but hope you can connect with people on this site, suggestions and comments do help and you might say something that will help others.
@Pudding yes you’re right let it go, shout, scream, it’s your grief. I feel so much better when I’ve had a good cry instead of holding it in.
