Since I first posted about my husbands death(it is now over 2 years since he died) I have been sent right back to the deepest grief because the only family I have, my sister (whom my husband and I took on holiday with us for over 16 years until his death, after her husband died) and my two nieces have deserted me and I am now losing many "friends" because I cannot come to terms with my husbands death. We meant everything to each other and did everything together so where am I now supposed to go and also where is the compassion? I have spent my life caring for other people (both parents) andy have always been there with a willing ear to listen to any problems my family and friends had (and there were many) but where are they all now I need the support - gone with the wind thats where. I have about 5 friends I can rely on to let me cry when I need to and talk about my husband all I need to and that is it. I expect I shall lose them as well soon if I don't buck up and get over it. Well that is never going to happen so I suspect I shall end up friendless and without family (we never had children). I had never experiences much in the way of happiness until I married and suppose I never will again until (Ihope) we meet again.
How in God's name to other widows cope with this loss of friends and family just when you need them most?
