I lost my best friend 5 months ago
Since then, I retired and moved to be closer to my son. my life is so empty without my husband. He was my best friend, my rock, and the love of my life for 44 yrs. We were looking forward to retirement but in February he got sick and within 5 days of been in hospital he died. I sat with him 24 hrs a day holding his hands until he drew his last breath. I was so strong then but now feel like I am falling apart at times. I cry a lot and feel so alone in my grief. I know I need to get out and meet people so am working on doing some volunteer work and I joined a gym. I am functioning but sadness is with me all the time. I used to be afraid of dying but now I am no longer afraid as when the times come I hope I get to be with my husband again.
