Hello @Ajtaylor,

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. I’m so sorry to hear about your dad. 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.

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,


Sorry to hear of your loss. It’s horrible to lose a parent. I lost my mum over 7 years ago and yet I can only talk of my own experience
I have learned so much and changed as a person. I’m not the same person I was I hate what my grief is doing to me. What makes it so hard is I lost my partners mum few months after my mum. She was like a mum to me. She was lovely I loved the bones of her she was there for me when I lost my mum
Like you I’m taking it out on myself and I am so very angry my mum has been taken away. I will never forgive myself for putting my job before my mum which I blame. Day my mum went I was In work and I knew my mum was very ill in hospital. My job was new I wanted to proof myself it was no excuse my mum needed more not sone stupid job
It’s not easy to not take it out on yourself.
One thing you can do is be kind to yourself and look after yourself take time to grief take care
