Widowhood in a Rural Area

I'm new here, but not new to widowhood. I don't know if I'm posting this in the right place on this site. My husband died very suddenly and unexpectedly in 2015.  I live in a small rural community.  My friends have all disappeared.  There are no widows groups or really any women's groups in my area. The nearest counselor is 3 and a half hours away.  I'm just looking for someone to talk to.  I suffer from severe anxiety.  I do try to get out to the limited places I have to go.  I am so lonely. …See More
