Woman, 73, California, USA
I volunteered a lot at the local office of a humanists’ organization, and skeptics’ investigation groups (as well as the local Pacifica radio station and an NPR radio station back in the 20th Century).
That all changed when my partner died in 2016. Grief was the most painful, disabling experience of my life. My brain wasn’t working right. I don’t think religion would have helped. I made a lot of mistakes, but I seem to be healing.
