Losing a parent

Hello, I’m not sure how this works on here but if anyone did see this I’d be grateful. I recently lost my father quite suddenly and he was my entire world and wanted to create a conversation with people who dealt/are dealing with a similar situation. I’m studying at university but finding it hard to slot back into normal life again. What helps you and how are you dealing with it xx

Hi maisie,

I’m sorry to hear about the recent sudden loss of your dad and I completely understand how you feel. 18 weeks ago I lost my mum to a sudden, catastrophic brain hemorrhage and I am still at a total loss. There were no signs and I feel my heart has been ripped out. My mum lived with my partner and I and did all our childcare. We all watched tv together, had dinner, enjoyed a glass of wine and a laugh. She was my absolute best friend and I just assumed that she would be around for another 15 to 20 years.
I already lost my dad to a sudden, massive heart attack when he was 53 and I was 27.
Life is very cruel at times. I can’t advise you on how to get through this because I’m struggling so much myself but I can listen to your feelings, concerns etc.
