My late husband passed away on Boxing Day 2013.It started as a normal day.We had lunch and we were winding down for the day.A sudden thump on the floor,looked and it was my late husband on the floor,in cardiac arrest.

I held a first Aid Certificate for work for over 15 years never used my CPR skills until then. I just went into auto pilot and administered it on him.While someone else called for an ambulance.The ambulance seemed to take hours,apparently the response was within twenty minutes. Unfortunately as we now know he did not make it.When the news broke l cried uncontrollably – l was devastated.

So began my journey of widowhood.At that moment all seemed hopeless but l am still here stronger and more empowered to share my journey on my highs and lows,to give my tips on how to survive.Until next time keep your hope alive. There is always Hope after loss.

I loss my husband over 8 years ago. I am a mother of two daughters. I have worked for over 20 years in Mental Health - empowering and giving holistic support to adults with long term Mental health challenges. I have seen through my work human beings have the ability and inner strength to survive any form of loss with the right support from family, friends and community.
