I feel lost

Hello, I lost my dad very suddenly & unexpectedly 13 weeks ago after an accident, I’m really struggling to come to terms with the fact that I will never see him again. I have a few good days & then feel guilty but I’ve completely lost all motivation in life & feel like there’s no hope for the future. I have my mum who is an absolute trooper & my daughter but I live in my own & im really struggling to do anything other than go to work, I’m just not interested in anything or seeing anyone, how do I stop feeling like this or is this normal I know my dad wouldn’t want me to be like this.

Hello @Sarahm2,

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 dad 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 right now.

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

Take care,

I lost my dad 9 months ago tomorrow and what you are feeling is entirely normal. I still feel the same today and as it is 7 years for my mam today I am extremely emotional. Just let the feelings out, I know my mam and dad wouldn’t want me to feel this way but I have no brothers or sisters and I feel so lost and alone. Just take care of yourself


Sorry for your loss, that’s tough losing both parents I dread the day :cry: . You look after yourself too. I can’t imagine how difficult it must be without siblings….bless you :heart: , it’s so hard

Thank you so much just knowing other people understand is a help

It is normal to feel like this. Grieve is like being on a rollercoaster, having ups & downs. I lost my Mum 13mths ago, my Dad, over 30 yrs & 5 other very close relatives & friends over the last 4 yrs, including my partner.
It has & still is so tough. Some days, i don’t know who i am grieving for.
I miss my Mum terribly, she was my rock, my best friend. So many different emotions to try & manage as well as trying to live a life. I live alone, i have family, but they do not live near by.
We all can only do our best & honour our loved ones with the love we have for them.
Take care.

Thank you for your reply, Oh bless you, that’s a lot of people to lose & must be so tough dealing with that by yourself. Sending you huge hugs it really is a rollercoaster :cry: xx

Thank you for your reply. It is hard, but we will all get through this & learn to live with our grieve, in whatever form that is.
Look after yourself.
