the despair and lonliness of being a widow after 55 years of marriage
My husband was ill but I didn't expect him to die. My life seems over, I miss him so much. I live alone with my dog, which I find comfort in. My husband loved the dog and I promised to care for him always.I miss human companionship. Every night I would tell him I loved him and He would answer I love you more. One night he just stopped breathing , I preformed cpr and the rescue squad came but couldn't revive him.I wanted to die also . My purpose in life is gone and nothing interests me.I am on depression medication and seeing a therapist but the pain is still there, it is like my heart is broken and I will never recover.
