PW's story

My CSF Active Listener came into my life at the end of one journey and the beginning of the next. I had been looking for the right person to help my husband but he died suddenly during his chemotherapy. It was just a week or two prior to his death that my CSF support arrived. My new journey is to learn to live life as a single person, something that I haven't experienced for 42 years. My self confidence was on the floor and I was utterly bewildered as to how to move forward. My Active Listener has been at my side to help with technology, shopping for clothes and going to places that are emotionally difficult. To continue to call him a supporter is to diminish what he has become, which is a true friend. To know that there is someone at the end of a phone or an e mail is hugely reassuring. I had stopped cooking due to my husband's illness, I now cook, I am researching kennel's for my dog so that I can visit the UK. There are so many things that I do now that I couldn't do, I had become frozen with fear and gradually that is reducing, and in so many ways, that is due to my CSF Active Listener, He has supported me and continues to support me in this journey back to being me. Long may he be there in my life. PW
