Losing my mum

I lost my mum in august 23. With cancer the grief seems to get worse
everyday. I just break down and cry everyday. Grief is so bad I just feel.
I don’t want to be here anymore. And the thought scares me. It would
have been mums birthday June 6th. Maybe why the grief is more. intentence

Hi @Pattaya,

I’m so sorry to hear about the loss of your mum. It sounds as though things are very tough and your grief is overwhelming right now.

It sounds like you’re looking for support and I’m glad that you’ve been able to talk about how you’re feeling here. We know that a lot of people experience suicidal thoughts when they are grieving. We have a video about it here which you might find helpful:


There is lots of other support out there, and I would really encourage you to reach out and speak to someone about how you are feeling.

  • If these thoughts of suicide become overwhelming, please call 999 or contact your GP for an emergency appointment immediately.

  • Samaritans are available 24/7 to talk about anything that you are worried about in confidence. You can call them on 116 123.

  • Shout are contactable by text, 24/7. You can text REMEDY to 85258 and talk to them about anything.

  • You can also find your local NHS urgent mental health helpline.

You deserve care and support so please, Pattaya, get in touch with one of these services.

Take care,

I lost my Mum in September 23 and I know exactly how you feel as I feel the same
I go and visit my Mum in the cemetery and talk to her also talk to her when I’m on my own some would say I’m mad but I find comfort doing this
I do what I feel is right for me I found it hard to talk at first but I talk freely ,my Mum is in my conversations every day
I hope this helps you
Sending hugs

Am so sorry to hear your sadness. It’s so very difficult but hoping you will start to remember the good things about your mum’s love and she would not want this sadness for you.
