Facing another year without mum & dad


My mum died in Feb 2022 and my dad in 2016. That means I’ve gone almost two years without having either of them around and I’m facing another year without them. I know that’s the reality of grief , but a part of me is struggling to take in that I have to face another year without them. I’m hoping as the year goes on the prospect of this won’t seem as scary, but right now it’s hard going. Michael

Hello Michael,

I can see you’re new to the community so wanted to say that I hope you find it to be a support to you. I’m so sorry for the loss of your mum and dad.

We know that the beginning of a new year can be particularly difficult. We’ve created a support page on coping with grief at the start of the year which you may find helpful to read.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I just wanted to let you know that you have been heard and are not alone.

Take care,
