Losing my mum

I lost my mum on 8th May this year. I feel like there is a gaping hole in my life. I spoke to her every day and I miss her so much. she was my hero, my best friend, my confidant, my support, she loved me unconditionally and it physically hurts my heart without her. I feel like I’m on autopilot just going through the motions of each day, how do I learn to live in this world without her in it :cry:

Hello Sharron26

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 to hear about your mum. Most community members have sadly experienced the death of a loved one and so will understand some of what you are going through.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that might be helpful.

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, Rhi

So sorry for your loss. I lost my mum aged 90, three months ago (middle of May). I didn’t know how I would survive. She was everything. Lived with her all my life. There’s no easy way. Just have to get through hour by hour, day by day. I’m on my own which is incredibly tough, and managed all the funeral and “sadmin” myself. Hope you have some support from family and friends. I’ve been reading a lot of books on grief, afterlife, etc. It’s so good to talk about her if you can. Cry, scream, whatever helps you through the day. I talk to mum around the house, even though she’s not here (sounds stupid, but gets me through). I visit her grave most days. Sending you hugs. xx
