In brief: Hard time: widowhood
I became a widow over a year-and-a-half ago, too.
It is a very rough time, and some moments are just harder than others. Holidays can bring special pain, so plan some new holiday activities this year. It won't be the same, but we know that already. Please find a grief support group, some physical activity that you enjoy, and let yourself walk through these tough days. It gets better bit by bit.
