Lost my best friend yesterday and it hurts

Hello @Khilna ,

I can see that you’re new to the community, so I wanted to say that I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend that brings you here.

I’m sure someone will be along to offer their support, but I wanted to share a few Sue Ryder resources with you that may help right now.

Thank you again for sharing – please keep reaching out and know that you are not alone.

Take care,

There’s no time frame for grief. I suppose people can only relate as far as they’ve experienced. I am so sorry for your multiple losses and the worry of loved ones you are now caring for. I cannot imagine how you are feeling or coping.

It’s been less than a week since losing my best friend and at the moment, I have people around me that are allowing me to be the way I need to be and going to work is helping me to distract my thoughts so I’m not sitting in metal paralysis all day.

It is so challenging to not have the person who I’d reach out to, to tell if I was upset or feeling any other emotion. I spoke to him as you might, a partner. We were each other’s company and support.

I feel better when not stopping myself talking about him, and I feel physically unwell and have lost any interest in eating, although I do make sure I eat sensibly to help myself not fall ill. I felt desperately lost and the pain was cutting, the first 3 days. I’m now feeling somewhat numb, as though nothing has happened.
