Hi I’m new to this site. I lost my mum 4 weeks ago (today). She’d been poorly for a while but had started to improve. We were called to the hospital to say she had deteriorated. My Dad and I stayed with her for 2 days until she died. We were both with her and she passed peacefully. She had been unconscious for the 2 days we were there.
I’m struggling so much. My Dad isn’t coping very well at all so I’ve been supporting him. Spending time with him sleeping at their house so he’s not on his own (my eldest daughter has been staying with him the majority of the time)
I have two younger children still at home so I’ve been trying to support them too. My partner is lovely but doesn’t really understand how after 4 weeks I’m still quite numb.
Does anyone else feel they haven’t been able to grieve their parent because they’re supporting the remaining parent??
Sorry if I’ve rambled on a bit x
