Hi. I’m new here. Thought I’d join as I’m really having a hard time at the moment and don’t have anyone I can talk to who genuinely understands what I’m going through.
I lost my mum in 2017 and it completely destroyed my world. She had terminal cancer, so I knew it was coming but it didn’t make it any easier to deal with once she passed. I still can’t believe she’s gone, because of cancer. It was always someone else who was going through it etc. Never did I think I’d ever hear the words come from my mum’s mouth that she had cancer, and then when it came back and had spread and we were told there wasn’t anything to be done, it felt like my heart had been ripped from my chest.
Then losing my dad in November 2020, due to an incredibly selfish person basically passing covid-19 on to him, even though my dad was classed as ‘vulnerable’. Someone else’s actions cost me my dad. I feel so angry as he should still be here. He was taken from us unnecessarily. My children lost their grandad, who they loved so so much! And now I’m left with no mum or dad.
I just need somewhere that I can come to where others understand this feeling of grief and pain.
