    Hi Shasbo,

    I'm so very sorry to hear that your wife has died. Grieving is painful and this can be especially so when the loss is recent. It is also something we all experience differently so it is important to let yourself mourn as much and as long as is right for you. From talking to others who have been bereaved we have found that there are common emotions and thoughts people go through such as those you have expressed. Talking about how you are feeling can be very helpful and we are here for you in the Marie Curie community. If you feel it would help you to talk please also contact us on our support line – 0800 090 2309.

    Shasbo, please do carry on writing here on the community if you want to - it can help a little bit to get your feelings out, and there are other people here on the community who are going through or have been through the same kind of thing.  Maybe the information on our website for bereaved people might help too:  https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief     Jane

    Hello shasbo so so sorry for your loss. I lost my husband four weeks ago. It hurts so much. Having a wonderful family to lean on helps. But sometimes probably like you sharing your feelings with them is so hard so I too have been trying to find help. I am going to give it a try on this community and maybe we can all help each other. Are you taking one day at a time hope that doesn't sound patronizing . Because looking too far ahead scares me. I have decided to set myself goals just little ones each day. Probably sounds a bit daft but it makes me feel I have achieved something
