My husband Brian passed away in November 2010, I thought that I had coped well in dealing with all that had to be done and sorted at the time. Christmas 2012 was found to be my downfall, as for the first time in my life I awoke alone on Christmas morning, felt no pleasure in opening gifts and felt so alone and vulnerable, even though family were coming for dinner.
I went into deep depression until I realised I could no longer cope and sought help from my GP who referred me to IM where with Ian's help I sorted out my "vicious circle", and became stronger with each meeting.
I am still on medication, and have asked my GP to review this again for me, hopefully I can stop this in February, once we have gone through Christmas and New Year, so that I don't fall back into that dark chasm again.
