I lost my dad

Hello I lost my dad in January and cremated him on Monday. I feel empty

Hi Sparkymoon, Welcome to the Sue Ryder Online Community. I’m so sorry to hear that you have lost your dad. It’s really common to feel empty - grief can bring all kinds of different emotions at different times. Try to be kind to yourself and let the feelings come and go as they need to.

I hope that you find this site a good outlet for your feelings. You aren’t alone here, as our users are all facing the loss of a loved one and will understand some of what you are feeling. While you wait for more replies to your post, you may wish to read some of the other recent posts in the Losing a Parent section of the site, and post replies if you see any you would like to join in with.

If there’s anything I can help with, or you have any questions about using this site, you can email me on online.community@sueryder.org, or send me a private message.
