melina Posted August 23, 2010 Report Share Posted August 23, 2010 I feel like I'm just using everyone here for my own benefit - instead of helping others. But it's still just a little over two weeks since my husband died. I just don't feel I can be of any help to anyone when I'm such a mess myself. I feel this intense sense of loneliness and terror that I might always feel this way. It's like I've lost my sense of safety and security - like anything can happen to me now. I'm completely vulnerable. Having no family to back me up and allow me to lean on them makes it even worse. I don't want to lean on my children. They need me. How do you deal with the loneliness and does it ease up? I don't want to live the rest of my life alone, yet I can't imagine living with anyone but my husband.
