I am so sorry to read about the recent loss of your wife. Grief is a very individual process and whilst each person develops their own unique way of coping with the loss of a loved one, you can find some ways of coping that may be helpful to read about on our website here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/looking-after-yourself
Grief brings with it many different and powerful emotions and it is not uncommon for someone to feel perhaps disconnected from reality as you have described – as if you are in a bubble. It is important to know that you don’t have to go through bereavement alone. We have some information about getting support on our website here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/bereavement-or-grief-counselling
Knowing who to get in touch with when you are feeling that things are especially tough or that you can’t cope can sometimes be a comfort. If you feel that you need to talk to someone there are a number of charities out there that offer a listening ear and emotional support, our Support Line being one of them.
We are also aware of an organisation called Cruse who offer bereavement support over the telephone, via email and face to face. We often hear that talking aloud or sharing experiences can help. To see what local support may be available in your area in the form of bereavement support groups you can contact Cruse directly by calling 0808 808 1677 or you can visit their website by clicking here: https://www.cruse.org.uk/cruse-areas-and-branches
We hope that you will find some of this information useful to you. If you would like to private message us with a contact number we would be happy to discuss any of this further. You can do this by clicking on our member profile and select ‘private message’.You can also contact us by calling our Freephone Support Line on 0800 090 2309, or drop us a line via Web Chat: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line
