Lost mum

I lost my mum suddenly in May from a heart attack I never got the chance to say goodbye and tell her I loved her. I don’t feel like I have had time to grieve as I have my dad to look after and I feel like I have noone to talk too.


Dear @Kes1

Welcome to the Community. I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mum. With heart attacks they can happen so suddenly, but I am sure your mum would have known how much you loved her.

I am so glad you have come here to reach out and this forum is great for support and to chat. You can connect with members who have been in a similar situation as yourself by typing in the search bar Loss of a Parent.

There is information on Losing a Parent which will be of help to you. You do need to grieve and grieve at your pace. It is a journey of a rollercoaster of emotions with good and bad days.

I see by your profile you live in Yorkshire. There is a Grief and Loss West Yorkshire and Harrogate Service where you can talk anonymously on freephone 0808 1963833.

I am so sorry for you loss. I also lost my mum in May to cancer. And I didn’t get the chance to say goodbye.
I also look after my dad as he is now all on his own. I have 2 children to look after one being a young baby. My partner works twilight shifts and I feel very much alone. I don’t have anyone I can really talk to who knows how I’m feeling. And there is only so much of a ‘there there’ from your friends you can take.
