I’m a 60-year-old widow, my children live abroad. My husband and I were college sweethearts. We were happily married for 26 years, but he passed away last year and my whole life fell apart. I miss him very much and feel terribly lonely. I’m not interested in anything— reading, travelling or watching the television, which were things we did together and with him gone, the joy has gone out of my life. I’m totally lost without him. My children are busy with their lives, though they keep telling me to visit them. I don’t want to exist like this.
