“How can I live without my partner? I can't go on."

It’s common to feel like you can’t go on after a loss.  It’s difficult for most people to imagine their life without their partner.  It can be overwhelming to manage the intense emotions and physical symptoms of grief as well as managing a household and functioning at a job.  Speaking with a counselor or attending a support group may help you cope with your feelings.  If your feelings continue to impair your ability to function in daily life for a long time, you should consider speaking to a counselor.  If you are feeling suicidal, you should seek help from a counselor, your local 2-1-1 crisis line or hospital immediately
