Losing my partner of 18 years

Hi everyone, wanted to see if any support for myself. I am 37 and lost my partner of 18 years suddenly 11 weeks ago he was only 36. We have a 4 year old little girl together, I am struggling each day getting by, especially with my little one asking so many questions. It’s just so hard miss him every minute of the day. I am off work at the moment as can’t seem to function day to day. So hard xxx


Hello @Claire84 , I am so sorry this has happened. This is hard. You might find help at Widowed and Young https://www.widowedandyoung.org.uk/ - a special site for younger widows who are juggling so much. 11 weeks is no time at all - you are so recent in your grief, like me - I lost T in January this year. I would see if you can grab some counselling or find a local support group. The Good Grief Trust - https://www.thegoodgrieftrust.org/ also might be helpful. Be gentle on yourself, and stay off work for as long as you can. It helped me to do that, and then go back when I was ready. Take care x

So sorry on the sudden loss of your partner. So young too life is so unfair. Hope you get some support from here and the websites that have been suggested to you by Vancouver. It’s early days for you and it’s a long process. Take your time, look after yourself and your little one and don’t rush back to work.
Take care xx
