Adjusting to widowhood – and GP life back in the UK


I knew Richard as a consultant in Hereford when I was an anaesthetic middle grade there. He seemed a nice fella. My own depression though a continuing companion is thankfully now well controlled. I remember too well how the mind ill with the horror of severe depression can see so clearly (but so wrongly) that removing yourself is the best and kindest thing for everyone around you. I was lucky that for me the treatments worked. I know that general practice was the strongest driving force in worsening my depression, I cannot imagine how horrific a GMC letter would have been at that time. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope you and your family find the ways to crack on. X
