Friend lost

I lost my best friend 18 months ago. It’s changed me massively and I can’t stop thinking about him. Also at the same time I became a father which has been hard. I think missing him so much and the huge lifestyle change (we did everything together) is becoming very hard.

Hi Dave, I’m so sorry to hear that you’ve lost a friend around the same time as becoming a father. It sounds as though he was a really big part of your life and it’s understandable that you feel your life has changed greatly and he is on your mind a lot.

I’m glad that you’ve found this site, as it’s really important to have outlets for your emotions and somewhere to talk about your friend - bottling grief up can make things worse. All of the users on this site have lost someone close, and will understand some of what you are going through.
