"Austin, contact your closest Hospice organization. They offer grief counseling that you can attend, even if your spouse didn't use them.  I was very fortunate, I was referred to them before my LH died as there wasn't a local support…"

Beyond Lonely

Hi Everyone, My husband died September 8, 2016 at 53 years old coming up the 3 year anniversary.  He died after a long battle with cancer Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma, he suffered but fought like a true marine.  I was his caregiver and also worked it was all very hard.  I felt guilty for not being able to stay home all the time.  He had to stop working so we needed an income.   When he needed me home I would take off I was on FMLA.  Eventually had hospice care at home.   We had no children together…See More

Hi Karen

I recently saw your post. I lost my husband in Nov of 2016 and also coming up on 3 yrs and the loneliness is the hardest part of this grief process. 

I was was able to find a good support group in my area. I live in NJ. Sometimes a certain group is not always the right fit. Perhaps there is another one in your area you can try. Everyone on this site knows what you are feeling and is or has gone through the same thing. 

Sending you kind thoughts and hugs. 

Annie
