Hello @Bubblegum,

I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. It sounds as though things are very very difficult at the moment and you are missing your dad a lot.

I’m glad that you’ve been able to share how you are feeling here and I hope that you find the community a good source of support. 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.

Hi @Bubblegum,
Sorry to hear you & your mum are struggling so much with the sad loss of your dad. My mom passed away 2 years ago. It’s good that you & your mum are able to support eachother through this upsetting time. Just take it one day at a time, especially with it being so resent. Even 2 years on, I still sometimes have moments when I need a cry, but there are some happy memories to that make me laugh or smile.
In 2007 my baby died while I was still pregnant with him, I still feel the loss, but I talk to him sometimes, & every anniversary of his passing, I go to a special place & write it him, I find this therapeutic, & helps me get some of the emotion out.
Some people keep a photo of their loved one that they talk to, or a memory box, but you do what works for you. Sending hugs of support.
