I’m thinking of you all and your losses.
My mum died in January. I still can’t quite believe it. She’s gone, just the thought terrifies me and reduces me to tears. It’s hard, I have good days and bad. At the moment I’m just so sad. Not can’t get out of bed sad, not bawl my eyes out every second of the day, but just this sinking, lonely sadness that seems to be my life right now.
I’m struggling to find things to look forward to. Me and mum used to have adventures… Sri Lanka, Mauritius, the Maldives, Las Vegas… endless craft days and a few drinks now and then, and more. She was young, 67, and only lost her mum 7 years before.
How are people finding things to look forward to in this challenging time?
What brings you comfort as the winter evenings draw in?
How will you recognise and remember your lost parent(s) over the Christmas break?
Its my dads 70th early next month, he died last May from pancreatic cancer. I’m going to do a £70 food bank shop (I’m fortunate enough to be in a position to do so) I think he would approve.
