Widow During a Covid Lockdown

The world is getting a taste of how a widow feels like after her husband’s death.  Being a widow during a Covid lockdown is surcharging the loneliness and feelings of being disconnected from others while grieving.

Widows that are under Covid lockdown can ease their loneliness by using their phone, tablet or computer to connect with others.  Just always remember that the online world can be unsafe, so never give out your personal information or address.  I don’t get paid by any organizations and so my lists of free sites are just a starting point for you during the isolation of a Covid lockdown.

      Dear Allyson – I can not help you as I am not trained to assist those that are suicidal. Please reach out to your local help suicide line for the support you need.

      It may also be of some assistance if you read my page on Suicide Preventation at https://sisterhoodofwidows.com/suicide-prevention/

      Please get the professional help that you need.
      Sincerely, Mary Francis
