Losing my mum

I’ve just recently lost my mum and I haven’t cried yet it’s such a strange and Surreal feeling like im walking around in a daze while everyone else is crying and upset I always thought I’d be a mess if I lost one of my parents and the reality is so different at her funeral I felt numb and felt like I wasn’t even really there it’s like my mind has closed up to what has happened it doesn’t help it happened so quickly she was diagnosed with cancer after months of not being well and in the end it took her in 19 days 🥲 I don’t know how im supposed to feel I feel guilty because im carrying on as normal my partner seems to think it’s not hit me yet and one day it will hit me like a ton of bricks

Hi Dee, I’m not surprise you are feeling numb, it takes time to come to terms with what has happened, everybody grieves differently, there is no right or wrong in this situation, I know I felt relief, anger, and sorrow after my husband died, it took a long time before I felt I could resume my new normal life, I still miss him dreadfully but have accepted the situation, be kind to yourself and take a day at a time ,some days will be better than others and that is ok, sending love Jude xx
