After the loss of your partner and, as time goes by, those of you who know, will understand the sheer aching loneliness that comes with losing that other half of you. Of course we have our friends and family, but sadly nobody can replace that feeling of being home alone in an empty house which has always been your home together.

Trying to cope with the challenges of living alone and all the responsibilities it entails is daunting. But a challenge it is and at the end of the day, whether we like it or not, we have to move forward.

The aim of the MOVING FORWARD group is to enable people in a similar situation and who would welcome the opportunity of contacting others to share social experiences and, importantly, to learn that it is okay to laugh again.

Why not link up with other people who may live in your same area and would love to meet for a coffee and chat? If you live somewhere where there is not much in the way of passing traffic, as so many of us do, it may be possible to form your own sub-group.

There may be places you would love to visit but, as always, not just on your own. Why not post a suggestion and see if others might like to join in too?

All personal contact information would only be available via private messaging within the group. And don't forget to subscribe to this Forum, that means that you will be notified automatically by email every time that someone adds a new topic or replies to a post. To subscribe, just scroll down to the bottom of this page and you will see that you can click to 'subscribe'.

The private messaging facility can also be used by those who feel they need more emotional support by talking to a professional bereavement councillor. Click here to find contact details viewtopic.php?f=61&t=702&p=1731#p1731

Presumably "moving forward" is for people dealing with whatever kind of loss (not just spouses?)

I expect I have met many of the people in this situation here in the North west Aude/Arriege borders?
