    I am new to this forum.

    My wife of five years killed herself last year, which was a tremendous loss. I seriously doubt I'll ever recover from it, and I'm not even sure I want to. She was the better part of what made me me.

    I find myself drifting further and further from the world of the living. It's a place I no longer have any ties to. My fear of death was deracinated with the death of my wife. I've since put myself in situations where the risk of death has been substantial, as a sort of practical fatalism.

    I'm writing here mostly to hear what other people have thought as they themselves have passed through the no-man's-land between the emotional departure from Real Life TM and the physical/clinical departure.
