Kirsty 79

Hello to all my name is Kirsty. I lost my wonderful dad two and half year’s ago now.And tomorrow I am burying my beautiful mum who sadly passed away on the 10th march. I am serious about what do I do now I don’t seem no point in going on my parent’s were and are my complete world. people tell me they are together again now but I do feel better knowing that but I just can’t seem to look into the future and knowing that they’re not going to be there I’ve never loved anyone the way I love my parents no one tells you or really explains to you what you need to do when they leave you I’ve never felt so depressed in all my life all I want to do is join them

Hi Kirsty,

I’m so sorry about the loss of your parents and also how badly it is affecting you. It has got to be one of the most terrible experiences in the world and nothing prepares you for it.

I have also lost both my parents in a similar time frame, my dad in January 2021 and my mum on 27th March this year. I am totally distraught and also don’t know how I am going to carry on without my mum especially, who I lived with and did everything with.

I have found this forum extremely helpful as it has opened my eyes that others do actually understand what I’m going through and I have taken some comfort from that. I felt like I was the only person of my age (45) to have lost both parents and that nobody else would relate, but the people in here are so kind and offer support drawn from their own experiences.

Have you considered counselling? I think I’m going to give it a go to see if it helps.

If you ever need to talk I’m here x
