Welcome to our online community.
We’re sorry to hear about the passing of your husband, Steve and how you are feeling. The difficult emotions that come with grief are not easy to manage and can understandably leave you feeling lost and uncertain. We hope that you are being kind to yourself. Many people tell us that they find some support in being able to talk about how they are feeling, and we hope that the community can offer you this. Our Support Line is also here for you -https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereavement

Caring for a loved one often quite naturally becomes the focus of your life and it can be a big adjustment when this sadly ends, whether your caring was over weeks, months or years. Many people have told us that even when you have a great family around you it’s still possible to feel lost without your partner, the person you shared your life with, Cherie. Sometimes it can be easier to share how you are feeling with those who are not family or friends, so you don’t feel you need to be protecting them when they are also grieving.
Please share as much or as little as you wish to with us.
There are a range of ways we can help you, from clear, useful information about living with a terminal illness to expert nursing care in your home.
