My husband shot himself and left me with a 4 year old and 4 months old. What a hell is wrong with men? Why do they think they can do something like that? Your life doesn't belong to you when you have children, you can't be so selfish! What do I do now???

I am so sorry for your loss. Do you have any friends/family/churches/community organizations in the area that can support you in your time of need? Most states have government assistance that can help with the groceries and formula.... Reach out to someone that can help you. Also, I know you are angry that this has happened, but I would encourage you to seek a therapist, this was a traumatic event, you may have not even begun to process it yet, and you will probably go through a slew of emotions along the way... Having someone to talk to may be beneficial. Again, my condolences.

Thank you for your responses. I am doing everything I am supposed to or anything I can think of - talking to a therapist, my four year old is going to therapy also, I have a good job so I can meet all of our immediate needs, my worries are things like what if I get sick? I don't have any family close by... what do I do on father's day when everybody at school is making gifts for their dads? do I look for a "new dad" right away while the children are small? I wonder what people in similar situations did...
