This Sunday will be my third mothers day since losing my mum just over 2 years ago.Its still painful seeing all the gifts and cards in stores to show your mum how much she means to you.Ive gotten use to it now but i wish there was also something in stores that says im sorry you lost your mum even when its been years but its all about celebrating and showing love.Theres so many people feeling this pain but its hardly ever thought about.If your struggling this Sunday.Just do what helps you so if its just remembering happy family memories or even just doing nothing and not thinking about the day.Thats ok.Theres no wrong way.
I’m so sorry to hear about your mum. I can understand that the lead-up to Mother’s day and the day itself may serve as a painful reminder to you, regardless of how many years it has been.
Everyone here has experienced the loss of a loved one and will understand some of what you are going through.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that may help you right now.
Our Grief Guide self-help platform which has information, resources and advice to help you through your grief
Our Grief Coach text service, which sends you personalised text support via SMS
Our free Online Bereavement Counselling which is held via video chat
Our Bereavement Information pages which can walk you through what you are going through.
That’s great advice, and I hope you can spend Sunday in a way that’s right for you.
Please do take care of yourself,
