Endless Sadness and Loneliness
by Bob M.
I lost my wife, my soulmate and best friend of 54 years almost 3 years ago and yet the pain doesn't ease. It's not that it has disabled me at this point. I can function normally with the usual houshold requirements and I even volunteer at Hospice one day a week. It's just that when I'm back home alone, I sometimes come apart at the seams. I never expected this after all this time but I see no hope for things to get better. Nothing or nobody seems to hold my interest and my kids both live in other states.
I just wanted to get this off my chest a little and wonder if anyone else has gone this long and feels the same way. At my advanced age, it's almost impossible to start over again at any level. Does anyone thinks there is hope out there for any of us in this situation?
