Approaching the 1 year anniversary of grandads death

Hi. It’s approaching the 1 year anniversary of my Grandad’s death and I am not coping very well. Also, as it’s my birthday very soon and I’m not feeling very excited by it. I am trying to be happy about it but I can’t and I am finding that when there are special occasions coming up, they just remind me of my Grandad. It’s not silly that I still cry over him is it? There are lots of emotions running through my head and I can’t process them all properly.

Hello @Lozzie2003,

I can see that you’re new to the community, so I wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your grandad that brings you here. It’s not silly to cry at all, no matter how long it’s been since your loss.

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.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,
