Newly Widowed

I want to share my loss.  I am newly widowed, just over three weeks.  The pain is almost unbearable.  The being alone, it's all so overwhelming.  How do you get by?  My therapist has me keeping a journal, but I sob continuously while writing in it.  They say it will get easier, but how do you cope in the meantime?

Kindly spent time with others if you try to isolate then the pain become unbearable. Do something good for others contribute to the community , volunteering for charities or something like that. Some people go to poor countries volunteering for some time. Gratitude of those poor people for our services some times help to overcome the pain of our loss. Then writing the gratitude journal.
