Loosing mum

I’m not coping very well at all, I have to move home find another job. I’m 51 years old, I don’t feel I can go on this pain is too real and my heart is broken, I just feel I’m not strong enough to carryon.

Hi @Babygirl73,

I’m so sorry to hear about your mum - that is devastating. There’s a lot going on for you and it’s completely understandable to be overwhelmed by this.

It sounds like you’re looking for support and I’m glad that you’ve been able to talk about how you’re feeling here. We know that a lot of people experience suicidal thoughts when they are grieving. We have a video about it here which you might find helpful:

There is lots of other support out there, and I would really encourage you to reach out and speak to someone about how you are feeling.

  • If these thoughts of suicide become overwhelming, please call 999 or contact your GP for an emergency appointment immediately.

  • Samaritans are available 24/7 to talk about anything that you are worried about in confidence. You can call them on 116 123.

  • Shout are contactable by text, 24/7. You can text REMEDY to 85258 and talk to them about anything.

  • You can also find your local NHS urgent mental health helpline.

Sue Ryder offers an online bereavement counselling service. This is a free service and sessions are held via video chat so you can attend from home. There’s more information about this service here: sueryder.org/counselling.

You can also make an appointment with your GP and ask to be referred to counselling or other support services in your area.

You deserve care and support so please, @Babygirl73, get in touch with one of these services.

Take care,
