Hello @Tate,

I can see that you’re new to the community. I hope you find it to be a support to you, but I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter that brings you here.

You say you feel that things don’t seem to be getting any easier. I wanted to share some sources of support that might help you right now.

Sue Ryder also has some resources which can help you cope with grief.

If online counselling isn’t for you, it might be worth making an appointment with your GP and seeing what support is available in your area. It sounds like as well as the death of your daughter, you had so much else to cope with at the time and didn’t get the support that you needed. Please do think about reaching out for some further support.

Take good care,

Thanks very much i have a appointment at the surgery next week so hopefully i can get some help with my sleeping the girls do help having them gives me a porpes and they seem to be coping?
