First birthday


this is my first time reaching out like this, i’ve always said i don’t need to do anything like this and that im fine but i suppose we all know that’s not the case, i lost my mum in february this year it’s my 21st birthday next week and i don’t know what to do, i feel at such a loss she’s my best friend and every year she’d make it so special for me going out of her way every single year and im not going to have that anymore im not going to get a card from her, im not going to hear her sing happy birthday i just don’t know what to do


@shootingstar hey, sorry for your loss. Losing a parent at any age is hard, but when you’re young and have had a great relationship, it seems harder. Do you have siblings that you’re close to?

Hello @shootingstar

I can see that you’re new to the community, so I wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your mum that brings you here.

I hope that you’ll find the community a good source of support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that may help right now:

I also thought you might find these articles on the Sue Ryder website helpful:

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

Take care,
