  1. I thought I was the only one that felt that way after losing my wife 10 weeks ago.
    Life has taken on a new meaning. My interest in participating in activities we shared and enjoyed (travel-dining out-hosting parties-going to the movies-playing cards-etc) abruptly evaporated. Gone, vanished, disappeared.

    Focus and consideration, qualities I took pride in and heavily relied upon have become a thing of the past.

    I want to be clear, I have no interest in harming myself or anyone else.

    I’m suffering the greatest loss I have ever experienced, feeling sorry and pain at depths unimaginable. Seeking understanding and perspective.
