Dear @Zaza84peck

I am sorry to hear of the loss of your mum and that you are struggling. I see that you are new to the Community, I do hope it will be of support and comfort to you.

Losing a parent is hard as they leave a big hole in your life. You need to take one day at a time and be gentle with yourself. There will be good days and bad days, it is a rollercoaster ride of emotions, all of which are normal. Grief is a journey and not a race and everyone’s journey is different.

There is a blog on Losing a Parent which may be of help to you along with the following resources by Sue Ryder.

If you have not done so already, I would book an appointment with your doctor and let them know how you are feeling and to see what support they can give you.

Please continue to reach out, you are not alone, we understand what you are going through.

Take care of yourself.
