Hello @Rocky1,

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 dad 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,

I know how you feel, my dad died 4 weeks ago, on his birthday very suddenly and I am utterly heartbroken. I have so much guilt wondering if I should if made him go to the doctor, even though I joked to him a couple of weeks before he died to get himself a health MOT at his doctors but he told me he was fine. I have so many what ifs, but I know I have to try and find a way to get through this, but it’s tough I hope you have family and friends for support at this difficult time and let’s hope we can both see a way forward look after yourself.

Thankyou yes it is hard but hopefully we will get through it and hope you’ve got support your way to
