Hello Hawk59,

I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your wife. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so 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 might be helpful.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.

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

Take care,

Hello Hawk59
I feel your pain you are not alone. We are all in this together feeling and going through the same feeling. But you hve reached out on her and we are always listening and we give surpot. Its taken me three months to ask for help at work I pushed everyone away. Asking for help is not a weekness. We need family and friends to help is grieve to cherrish memorries of yoir wifes life and to honner her life alway listening xxx
