Hi @Jue2312,

I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad and mum. It’s completely normal to feel this way, and you shouldn’t feel bad for it. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support.

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

Take care,
