I’m so sorry to read
about the loss of your wife and all you both experienced during her illness.
Grief is a natural
response to losing someone you care about and everyone experiences it
differently. There is no right or wrong way to grieve but the important thing
is to let yourself grieve and mourn as much and as long as you need to.
We often hear on our
Support Line that talking about how you are feeling can help and whilst you
mention that you never got in touch with helplines in the past, it is never too
late to pick up the phone. We have information on our website about how to get
support after the loss of a loved one which you may find helpful here: http://bit.ly/2iBeQ0b. This page also includes information about how
to access face to face bereavement support that may be available locally.
Here on the support line we can offer a listening ear if you ever
need to talk. You can get in touch with us with on our Freephone support line,
0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat:
