Its suddenly hit me

I lost my mum quite suddenly just over 5 weeks ago. I was with her and the rest of my family when she left us. I got through that and the funeral then the going through her things all ok. Then i had 2 migraines in as many days and all of a sudden it hit me.
I just wanted my mum and shes not here.
I saw my gp yesterday and broke down.
Ive gone from no feelimgs to all of them.
I keep wanting to call her to moan about work or tell her about my daughter knitting and i cant.

I dont think my husband gets how i feel even though we lost his mum year ago to cancer.
I dont feel like ive had time to even start grieving and feellike ive had to be strong but i cant be any more.
I know how im feelimg is normal but ive never felt so alone.

Hello @Ktb,

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 mum 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,
