Loss of my Dad

Hi all, I lost my Dad a few weeks ago. He had a blood clot on the lung and we watched him pass in the most awful way. It was very expected and Im looking for some advice on how to manage my anxiety due to what I saw and how to deal with the heartache of loosing him. Im a Mum to 2 children so I hold it during the day which I know isnt helpful and its just led to my anxiety levels rising

Hello @Lynz89,

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 dad. 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,


Thank you so much for your kind welcome, I will definitely take a look :slight_smile: x

I lost my mom 2 weeks ago to double pneumonia and kidney failure .Totally out of the blue . I’ve lost my mom and my best friend .She was the matriarch of our family ,The glue that holds us together .
I’m just lost ,empty .I can’t stop crying .and then there’s nothing .
I’m trying to sort the funeral helping my dad and being there for everyone else and it’s suffocating .

I lost my mum very recently, so I am thinking of you. Keep using the forum for support. Sending hugs. Xx
