I am Devastated

I lost my friend, husband, lover, business partner, creative partner and only one I trusted to Lung Cancer on November 24, 2012. He was diagnosed on October 7, 2012. It was way too fast.
It has been 36 days and I am devasted. I live isolated in the country where there is no one around. My family lives very far away and I have no friends.
My husband and I rescued stray cats that people dumped out here. I have twelve wonderful indoor felines who I love, but who I am ready to leave.

I know that grief is ongoing, but I am way too lonely and lost without my dear love. He wanted me to continue but I told him that I would not be able to and I was correct.

Anyone who has some idea of what I should do to go on, please respond; otherwise, I do not think it is possible. Thanks.

Re: I am Devastated

I am so sorry for your loss. But to honor him by abiding with his wishes is the best thing you can do. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I urge you to find a grief recovery counselor and find help.

Re: I am Devastated

You're devastated and for a very good reason. You've been through so much in such a short period of time. It would help to see a therapist who specializes in grief. You really need some professional help to get through this. See your doctor and get some medication. Do whatever it takes to survive. You have 12 lovely felines that you love and who love you. They need you.
