“I’m not sure how old I am; I have four girls and three boys. I’m from Palangan village in Kamyaran. When my husband and I got married, we were soon able to buy a house and had livestock too. But now, my husband has fallen ill and staying with our youngest son; I’m too attached to the countryside lifestyle and cannot live in the city with them. This loneliness is difficult for me. The most unpleasant memory I have with my husband is when one of our daughters, who wasn’t even too young, got sick, and he took her to the doctor. I stayed in the village with our other children. My husband returned a few days later, and I saw he was alone. Sadly, our daughter passed away, and he buried her on the way home”.
