I am a young 63 widow who lives alone and even though I can keep myself busy I find I am so terribly lonely because there is nobody to talk to day in to day out.Up until 3 months ago I worked helping my son & daughter in law .For 8 wonderful years I was kept busy 5 days a week interacting with my grandchildren & running their house & for this I was paid a monthly salary which supplemented my income.Then suddenly my son told me he could no longer afford to keep me on and I was asked to finish up at the months end.This has been a huge set back for me emotionally though at the moment not yet such a financial disaster as I am being helped financially for a short while by my other children.My daughters have emigrated to other countries and I hardly ever see my sons though occasionally we are in contact by phone.I have been advised by my children to find some form of gentle employment as I have a back problem,spine pain & wear a surgical corset. So far all my efforts to find gentle employment have drawn a blank as there is such a huge unemployment problem in the country that is for the young yet alone the elderly.Added to this I battle daily with social phobia though I make myself go for walks.I cannot afford to join anything ie clubs or take anything up and I am finding the days so terribly lonely.Does anyone have any suggestions of any kind,would be so welcome.
