It’s been just over 2 years losing my brother, why are the days getting harder and also can grief cause metal breakdowns?

Hello @Lunabell ,

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 that your days are getting harder. I’m so sorry to hear about your brother. 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.

You might also find the following Sue Ryder article helpful, when you feel ready -Losing a sibling: Sibling loss: Coping with death of your sister or brother | Sue Ryder

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,

Hi Lunabell. It been just over two years since losing my husband. I felt I had a few reasonable months but yesterday I had to go back to GP as I’m just not coping at all. She said I was depressed with chronic anxiety. She added a further tablet. I walked around the park with my sister and shook the whole way around but I did it. I am sorry I have nothing more encouraging to say at the moment but I wanted to let you know you are not alone in how you feel. Keep posting. Sending hugs x
