One of the places I go online for support is WidowNet. I spend some time every week on the message boards keeping track of how ‘we’ are all doing.
Lately I’ve been starting to feel tired all the time. At first I just thought I must not be getting enough sleep, but I’ve been getting to bed at a reasonable time, and sleeping in on the weekends. Over on the Widownet message boards there currently is a thread that ‘everyone’ is using to express how tired they are. As I read through the posts I realized that I’m not alone, and that the tired I’m feeling isn’t just physically tired it is emotionally and mentally tired. If you want to know a little of what it is like to be a widow/widower reading these posts may give you a little insight.
