It's hard to get out and meet people when you're depressed. But, suggestions; your local rec center has free glasses & exercise machines for older people & you're bound to talk to people there. Exercise helps with depression.

 

Groups; this is hard if you've never been a joiner, but worth being brave for

 

a bereavement group might help; you say you're doing okay with being a widow, but it could be grief.

 

there are many people like you, who are lonely and need someone to talk to; it would help if you can find them. In Tina Fey's biography, she talks about being a lonely and outcast kid & she remembers seeing others like her at school. Tina wondered why it never occurred to them to talk with each other.

 

Are you an animal person? Maybe a dog and/or cat? They make great companions (of course, you still need human companionship.
