Hello @tiki2072016, we’re glad to see everything is working technically for you here on the forums now.
We are glad to be here for you. It sounds like you had a wonderful relationship with your dear wife and no doubt many beautiful memories to enjoy and reminisce on. Feel free to tell us about her – it can be very therapeutic to talk or write about our loved ones and we would be pleased to hear more about her and your loving relationship of 41 years.
It sounds like you are employing lots of self-care strategies to deal with your grief. Seeking support from friends and family, gaining knowledge about the grief process, looking after your diet, attending to your sleep and checking in with your GP – all of these combined will help to ensure you have a good foundation to adapt to your changed circumstances and continue to live life in a meaningful way.
However, it seems you have a lot on your plate as you navigate all the paperwork involved. Perhaps it would be a good idea to tackle these things in small bites. Give yourself permission to take your time and be gentle on yourself.
We hope that you will keep in touch and let us know how you’re going. You are a welcome member of our community Tiki. 🌸
