I lost my mum in February this year, then my uncle, her brother last month. Everyone I grew up with loving me has gone. I have a husband and two children (19 &23) plus my husband’s family, but I feel so incredibly lonely. Like it’s just me know. I miss my mum every day. My dad died 14 years ago. My close friends live four hours away and I don’t really have anyone other than work colleagues here. Does it get easier? Sometimes I just want to lock myself away.
I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community . I’m so sorry to hear about your mum, uncle and brother. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.
I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few resources with you that might be helpful.
