Losing my daughter

In july i lost my daughter she was 24 , she took her own life . Our lives have been turned upside down , my emotions are up and down , some days i cry some days i just feel numb and feel like this is not happening to us and we are watching it from the outside and feel like it is happening to someone else :broken_heart:

I’m so sorry for the loss of your daughter .
I lost my son in June so understand .

You will still be in disbelief this has happened .

I go in and out of denial to cope .

All we can do is take one day at a time and hope we can somehow live alongside this devastating loss.

The loss of a child to suicide has so many complexities it’s hard to get our heads around it.

One thing that does help is talking to others who understand so keep posting here when you need to .

SOBS and The Compassionate Friends have helplines you can call for support and also run support groups .

Keep reaching out as it can feel very lonely.
Take care

I’m so sorry I can’t phantom the pain your enduring in here anytime

I understand the numbness, I’m still like it. My son passed in January and it is so wrong that he’s not here anymore. My happy boy is no longer making people laugh, he was such a funny boy. I say boy but he was 35 but he did make people smile.


I lost my daughter in October she was 29. We have to have an inquest but it’s looking like accidental suicide. The pain is unimaginable. I think about her every day. I miss her so much. The pain hurts so much and I don’t know how I’m going to cope with a lifetime of it

I’m so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I lost my son in March which was accidental drugs overdose. Life will never be the same and we will never be the same, however somehow we learn to live along it. You will find some days the pain is so immense, the crying, the panic. All I can say from experience go with your feelings, do what you can, don’t be told how you should feel, eat little meals regularly and have some exercise. This site is my lifeline.
Be kind to yourself xx

@Selinajayne I am so sorry that you’ve lost your beautiful daughter. I agree with MJG we certainly will never be the same person we were before we lost our children. My middle son passed in Jan and I’m still so raw. There is no definitive way to get through this x
