I was married to a wonderful woman for 42 years, she was my soul mate and my best friend. Since my wife’s death things have changed a lot. Our children we did not see for many years turned up for the funeral.
They convinced me the house me and my wife lived in was too big for me now. It all happened so fast my home was sold and I now live in a small flat in a complex for old people. I do not feel old, I am healthy and still fully mobile. I just sit in a chair all day watching TV, maybe I will go to the shops.
I feel so alone, every day is a struggle to get out of bed, some days I wish I was dead just to be with my wife? Has anyone been through this? What advice or help is out there? Excuse the dark tone of this question I just miss my wife so much and am losing the will to carry on without her. Submitted By Jonathon.
