I’m so sorry to read about the loss of your husband, your soulmate, and
to hear how lost you are feeling.
With everything that you have gone through so recently, it’s understandable
that you have been finding things difficult and feeling out of control.
Losing a loved one can evoke a range of powerful emotions. Often people
tell us that they feel a sense of unreality along with feelings of intense
sadness, and tears. You may find it helpful to look at our information about
grieving in your own way here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/grieving-your-way
. It’s important to know that whilst everyone grieves differently, you don’t
have to go through bereavement alone.
Many find that talking can be a helpful and comforting experience. Whilst
it’s good to hear that you have a wonderful, supportive family, some people also
choose to reach out and talk about how they are feeling with someone outside of
their family or friends. Sometimes this can make it easier to be open without
worrying about the impact this may have. Many people choose to do this with a
Support Line, such as ourselves. If you feel that you would be comfortable
reaching out to us yourself, then please do so by calling us on Freephone 0800 090
We also feature further information about getting bereavement support on our website
which you may find useful to read here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/bereaved-family-friends/dealing-grief/bereavement-or-grief-counselling
If you would like to get in touch with us, our opening hours are Monday
to Friday 8am to 6pm and on a Saturday 11am to 5pm. You can reach us on our
Freephone number above, or through our live web chat function here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/support/marie-curie-support-line
