So hard to lose a parent and for me I can so relate to you as I lost my mother 14 months ago. It’s the worst feeling ever and you are not the only one struggling.

I do hope you can get on with things better - you will always feel the loss but perhaps, you’ll be able to take it with you and live with it a bit easier…

I lost my mum suddenly just 6 months ago and it is just awful I miss her so much. She stayed close by and not seeing or hearing from her most days is heartbreaking. My son also misses his nana but there are certain things he does that reminds me of her. I think it’s as they spent so much time together and we lived with her for a year so they had their own little routine etc. You only get one mum and nothing can replace that. :broken_heart:

@Tidydave sorry for your loss. It’s difficult to switch off even after 6 months I still can’t. Someone said to me if I am busy with work etc does it take my mind off it, I said it’s a distraction but she is always in my thoughts as it was my mum. I just hope this journey gets easier for us all.

I feel you. I’m so sorry, I wish I could some how give you some comfort but I too am struggling. Its so fucking hard.
