Life Is Like Just Going Through The Motions And Not Really Living

my husband died very suddenly 6 months ago ( we only got married 5 months earlier) and i was paralized by grief !!I it got worse two weeks after i lost him that my best friend of 30 years also died as suddenly as david. i stay so busy  to pass time that if i have any free time i fall apart and i can't handle those times! david and i were friends first for 17 years and the two best friends are gone and no one or nothing has helped to fill the emptiness inside! i feel like i live a double life, people tell me i am doing good but the only see me outside, when i'm home and alone i  feel like i have no purpose. All the plans, dreams and goals we made and shared are not possible wthout him and i'm not sure how to find my way to re-invent myself the way i need to with this next part of my life ??

We are all here if it helps to chat x

Oh dear..... I know it 's hard! I couldn't imagine going through it twice in a lifetime! Any time you need to talk just pm me. I know about those times alone. People who haven't gone through it don't understand how bad the pain and anguish is. It's not just an emotional torture but a physical one as well. people who don't understand can't see that.
