Hi, you have had a lot to cope with so it’s no wonder you feel like you do. You have done the right thing coming on here where people who are grieving like you will understand.
Have you asked you doctor for help? And what about counselling? Sue Ryder does that too, but I think there is a bit of a wait. In the meantime, I am sure others on here will talk to you. You are not alone and we all try to help and support each other. Keep posting, we are here.

Hiya I’ve told my doctor I’m feeling very low quite a few times I just get told to carry on with anti depressants which I don’t feel are helping me Thankyou for taking the time to reply I feel like I’m trapped in a horrible bubble and cannot find a way out xx

That is a shame. I know it’s a hard thing to do but I think you should go back to the doctor and tell them that. Stand your ground. They aren’t suffering. You are, and you need help.
Let me know how it goes. X
