    I lost my husband in February this year I thought I was handling it well until recently the feeling of loneliness has started to creep in. Does anyone have advice? And why is it at night once my little is settled in bed do I feel most vulnerable? Fyi eating donuts does not help! I thought maybe make new friends by talking people online but that’s a dangerous game depending on the sites you visit! Hopefully this one is safe because im loosing my faith in humanity when their answer is sending a nude!

    Is there anyone out there who has sain advice?? …..

    I’m so sorry for your loss! But life is going on and you must live for your child. Loneliness is our choice in some way. Be more active, do what you can do best. Go for a walk, do sport instead of eating donuts (it’will only upset you when you put some kilos on weight), start learning something new, enroll in some courses, there you can easily find new friends. Do it for yourself and your child. You will succeed definitely! Good luck!

    Listen I’m going through the same thing. You have to engage in activities. Reading.playing sports. Walking. Comedy. Meeting friends. I know what you mean at night when your alone and your mind runs wilds with thoughts and it talks to you. How about meditation.

    Hello I’m new too!

    It’s a very difficult time for many reasons firstly your loss! My condolences it leaves a huge hole both psychically and mentally.

    That’s why at night a long lonely sadness creeps in that can’t be shook but can be managed, I find it useful to read and have music on. Try finding new Authors and get into new music or old, try and avoid things that bring back memories there will be plenty time to reminisce once your in the right headspace.

    be nice to hear from you and I hope you’re okay
