Losing both parents in a year

I lost my dad April last year and my mum September last year . I miss them soo much ive also had a heart attack, i feel very alone , just registered with cruse i dont know what to do can any one help me now as there is a long waiting list to see anyone at cruse. Ive tried talking to my hubby but its not making me feel better . Alot has happened since my loss including being flooded out in january this year , just moving back in our home . I now feel im ready to talk to someone about my loss as im feeling really horrible and my anxiety levels are high, stressed . Alot has happened and so sorry for the rant i could go on , i just need help.

Hello @Collie,

I’m part of the Online Community team and I can see that you are new to the community - I’d like to thank you for bravely starting this thread and sharing how you are feeling. I’m so sorry for the loss of your parents - it sounds like you are coping with such a lot at the moment and it’s understandable you’re feeling stressed.

I’m glad you’ve registered with Cruse, though I’m sorry there’s a long waiting list. In the meantime, here are some other options which you may wish to explore:

Remember that the Samaritans are always there for you too on 116 123.

If you feel like it might be helpful to meet others in person, the AtALoss website lists local bereavement support, too.

I really hope you find the community helpful and a good source of support and I also hope you feel you can access more support should you need it.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,


Thankyou for your message i will try and find the information about the grief coach service and your bereavement service hopefully i will contact you next week as im very busy over the weekend . Once again thankyou
