Depression/Mind Slowness

My wife committed suicide on 09/10/2016 by hanging herself when I was at home itself. We were together from last 12+ Years out of which 2+ Years in College, 3 years in live-in & 7+ Years in marriage. I am slowly losing my mind. Unable to bear emotions when alone remembering our life which we spent together. I loved her a lot, it is hard to imagine rest of life without her. I am unable to come into my job work again, physically moving & speaking very slow. Willing to sleep all the time. Kindly save me although I am already very strong.

Sir, very sorry for your loss. You need to understand that your loss is recent and it will take sometime to overcome grief- but, do consult a counsellor or psychologist who can help you in the process.
Health Tips
do not try to push away the emotions or memories.. they will always be there. instead, you can take moment to try and accept their presence in your mind and get on with the work at hand. there is no need to push yourself too much to get back to normalcy urgently.. grief takes time and it's very natural to go through this process for everyone of us at a point in our lives. take your time. good luck.
