Thank you FE it has been a hard two years, and although as you know I am not religious, this time of year seems especially hard! I used to scoff at those with some sort of faith, I now find I envy them!
When my wife died, something of me died with her. Nothing prepares you for the onslaught that grief visits upon your mind and body, life seems empty now and each day is to be endured rather than enjoyed.
The things that seemed important before seem trivial now, and whereas I used to interest myself in politics and current affairs, I now can't be bothered.
It all just seems so pointless.
