Welcome to the Community. I am sorry for your loss and as to how you are feeling.
I am concerned that you have mentioned you would like to join your wife. You are very much in the early stages of grief and need to take one day at a time. Have you considered talking to your GP for support and to see if there are local bereavement groups in your area. It would be good for you to talk to someone.
I would like to guide you to the Samaritans who are available 24/7 on 116123 for free for someone to talk to straight away. Please ring them. They are there to listen and to support you.
You are not alone and there is loads of support here with the Community members. I would also like to guide you to our recently launched Grief Self-Help Service which has useful information on ways to cope with bereavement and grief. All you need to do is create an account. This will also be of help and support to you.
We are here for you and please continue to reach out any time. You are not alone.

Hello Bobby, Sorry you are having such a hard time. Its five and a half years since my lovely wife went, but I still find it hard, and shed tears every day. like you I wonder why I’m not with her, and wish I was. but Jan always said life was precious, and we must make the best of it. It is very hard after 55 years together. I don’t know if I ever will get over this pain, but for my Jan I will go on. We all struggle on. It will be hard, the memories will bring more tears and some joy. I look to the day when I join her, with hope.
