I certainly understand how everyone who has posted feels. I lost my husband 5 years ago to melanoma and I wish it had been me instead of him. The family either thinks Im over it or an coping fine but in reality it gets worse. I would like to have a friend but I just cant seem to get motivated to go out and meet people. Hence joining this site. And the first thing I add sound like a winge. But life will go on and we will all go along with it.

I know exactly how you feel jacquie, family have their own lives and get on with it, we however struggle to fill that empty space in our lives. ((hugs))

I think, if you have enough inner resources, then you can live in isolation for long periods of time and not feel diminished by it.
