Hello @Lesleyp64, I’m so sorry for the loss of your son. There is no timeline for grieving and everyone experiences grief differently. You are not alone.

I just wondered if you had ever had any extra support for your grief? We offer free online bereavement counselling which is held via video chat. Your GP can also put you in touch with support in your area.

Sometimes, being around others who understand what you are going through can be a source of comfort. The Compassionate Friends are there for anyone who has lost a child, no matter how old they were. If you have a look at their website, you can explore what kind of support might work for you.

Take good care and keep reaching out.
