Hello Chaz1,

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 the loss of your mum and dad. 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.

Take care,

Hi, sorry for the losses that have prompted your post. You’re still in the early days after the death of your Dad so take things as they come. It will take a while to process and adjust. Grief is brutal, it can be overwhelming. Try to develop a new routine for yourself each day. Keep it simple and don’t put unnecessary pressure on yourself. Best wishes xx
