Hello @Jodie ,

I’m so sorry to hear about your Mum and Dad. It sounds as though things are very different now and you are feeling alone.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share this link with you to help you with your grief.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I lost both Mum and Dad last year within 12 weeks of each other. What makes things worse is that I had to have my handsome Labrodor, Bruno, put to sleep just before Mum died. I didn’t really grieve properly last year, because everything seemed to follow on from each other. After Dad died we then put our house for sale. We bought my brother’s share of Mum and Dad’s bungalow with the proceeds. The day after moving in I was rushed to hospital with Gallbladder problems. I’ve been in hospital 3 times since February.
After being discharged last week I feel so low and can’t stop bursting into tears. Next Tuesday would be Mum’s birthday and the 25th May is the first anniversary of my Bruno passing away. It’s come from nowhere and hit me like a train. I can’t stop thinking about Mum, Dad and Bruno. I miss them so much and keep on crying without warning.
My wife is wonderful and we talk things through, but I just feel so inconsolable.
My brother suffers from depression and is also having a hard time. I try to be positive, but I can’t come to terms with the horrible events of last year.

So what direction do we take ? I thought about my mum again today, I lost her last August. I lived with mum for 50 odd years. Not posted for awhile on here due to work and having problems with my lower back too. I know I wouldn’t have mum forever she died at 95. But so many memories together doing things. Now like everyone on here I am alone. Never been married or had kids so not a lot of support for me. Except a aunty in Australia and a couple of friends and people in social media.
