Loss of both husband and mum

Three weeks ago I lost my mum. She had dementia and just faded away. 4 nights ago my husband passed away suddenly, we don’t know why and there will be a post-mortem. I have 2 young girls and an adult son with Autism and feel utterly devastated. How do I get through the next few days and weeks? How do I find the strength ?

I’m so sorry you lost two loved ones in such quick succession. I lost my Mum suddenly over a year ago.
Regarding coping and finding strength. The only thing you can do is take in hour by hour and day by day. Rest often. I found going to bed an hour earlier every night helped with poor sleep. My GP warned me to make sure I ate well, as the body can get run down quite quickly. Be gentle with yourself. You will find the strength to carry on. Just take hour by hour.
Take care.
