How to describe how hollow I feel? Like, literally hollow: I feel like someone scooped out my insides. Sometimes all I can feel existing inside my body is my heart and my brain, just banging against the prison of my skin and bones.

Agree Lynne, cocooning is how I feel somedays and other days empty. Peace and Hugs to you Christina.
hollow is the perfect word...No purpose without him.
Thanks, Lynne. Cocooning, that's a good word for it, and makes me feel a little better about how much time I spend there. Makes it sound natural. Peace to you.
Agree with Suz - WELL said, Cristina! Most of the time, I'm feeling a bit better (and less hollow) each day...but there are still moments when I revert back to the exact feeling that you have described so well. Sometimes, I just have to cocoon for a while when that happens. Wishing us all peace, healing and wholeness again someday soon. Never soon enough, granted, but soon. All the best, Lynne
Love and hugs, back, Suz. Take good care.
Well, you said it beautifully in two lines. I know the feeling so well, sweetie,
Just getting over major flare after burial and a week with nephew and his new wife. They are adorable but this hollow woman needs solitude!
Love and hugs,
