My husband died very suddenly 4 weeks ago this coming Monday. I’m not sure I can raise our three children on my own, i do have two grown up children they help where they can but I feel so alone.
I’m part of the Online Community team and 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 husband. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.
Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss and just wanted you to know your post has been noted and that you have people here who understand how you must be feeling.
Nothing will take the hurt away but you have a safe place here to say what you feel and not be judged only comforted.
I am on my own with someone to care for, and it is six months now. I focus on care and activities all day, it’s the quiet times that are hard, and I struggle with sleep. My wonderful man died suddenly and unexpectedly too, but we manage alone. We do daytime activities, and I watch out for him, as he is grieving, too. Have you contacted the charities that help with childhood bereavement?
