I wasn’t sure which category to put this in…but I’m struggling with feeling very lonely and being lonely especially with Christmas approaching…I’ve experienced many losses and was so close to my beautiful mum who I nursed when she was terminally ill…the loneliness can feel that bad and painful it hurts.

Just wounderd others can relate to this horrible feeling- experience.? Probably not expressed it very well.

Tray, I think almost all of us know this loneliness and as you say with Christmas approaching it just gets worse. I don’t have any answers only to say you are not alone. Christmas can be a dreadful time but try to remember it’s just one day and if that means doing nothing, then it’s just one day of doing nothing. Sending lots of hugs and special blessings. S xx

Christmas can be a hard time whilst grieving
Last christmas was the first since I lost my nan, and with this christmas approaching I understand some of the feelings you may be experiencing.
As @SusieM said you arent alone, please remember that

Hi Susie and Skler,

Thank you so much for your reply.

I think because this Christmas there seems to be lot more emphasis on it being family get together…which is lovely for those that have lots family but not when experienced alot of loss…this year it seems to be really getting to me and I’m struggling with it…the adverts etc seem to be on even earlier than previous years.

The loneliness is painful…just keep being so aware of it and it hurts…I’m very grateful for your kind response s and for this site xx
