I miss Mum and Dad. It has been 8 years now since Mum died of lung cancer and doesn’t get any easier in fact I realise now I have not fully dealt with the grief. She was my best friend and always at the end of the phone 24/7 and this weekend when I felt poorly I really struggled without her and not having someone else to check in with. The lows are getting lower and that scares me.
I am resilient and have tried everything to feel better, the counselling, the tablets, books, exercise, moving country, moving house, jobs, partners but the dark cloak of depression keeps pulling me backwards and I don’t want it to win!
So I am doing something I haven’t done before. I am asking for your help and being really honest about my struggle with grief and feeling alone. Let me know you are out there, let me know I am not the only one struggling with this (I know I can’t be) and please share advice on what gets you through the tough times.
Thanks in advance x
