Getting through each day without my mum and dad πŸ˜ͺ

My dad passed away back in 2015 and he had been ill for a number of years and my mum did her best tolook after him. I felt she had only just got her life back after caring for him for so long when she was diagnosed with stage 3 lung cancer - she sadly past in September last year and I have a real sense of abandoment and loneliness even though I have my own family. My sister was killed in a RTA in 1989 aged just 7 so I feel Ive been going through the stages of grief for a long time. :broken_heart:


Hello @elaine9,

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 parents and sister that brings you here.

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.

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

Take care,

Ahh Sue Im so sorry for your losses sounds like you are going through so much and you are dojng the best you can but try to be kind yourself and its important to look after yourself. I know thats easier said than done…my biggest thing is lack if sleep and having no energy or enthusiasm to do anything. Thinking if you my lovely x
