Losing my dad

I lost my dad 3 weeks ago and finding it really hard. My mum has lost her husband of 50 years and it’s heartbreaking to see her so sad.

Hi Ruth
I’m so sorry for the loss of your dad and for your mum for the loss of her husband.

I reached out on this community site a few days ago, it gives me some comfort to know you are not alone, as everyone here is going through the same tragic loss.

I lost my partner suddenly on 7th May he was 58 very fit and not unwell.
Like you my children are suffering terribly and their hearts are broken for me. I can’t hide my emotions. I’ve screamed and cried almost every day. I am completely devastated and can not even function. He was my soulmate, my life. We lived and worked together, socialised together. We were literally one. I have completely fell apart.
its breaking my heart watching my girls trying to comfort me. Especially when their own grief is saw raw.
I wish I could push a button and make the pain go away, but I can’t. We are just trying to get through this together, one day at a time.

I can truly understand how your hearts breaking for your mum. Don’t be too hard on yourself its very early days for you. I’m sure you will be there for each other during this heartbreaking time.
Take care Ruth xx

Hi Ruth. I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost my dad the end of march. He had Alzheimer’s at a young age. He was only 68. I struggle everyday with this intense pain. Just try to take one day at a time. I can relate to how you are feeling. Take care of yourself. Xx
